Web Survey Development
Annual Employee Survey
Under a contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Westat conducted the 2007 DHS Annual Employee Survey. The web-based survey, secured by login credentials, assessed job satisfaction and perceptions of the work environment.
E-Verify Evaluation Survey
Over a 15 year period, Westat has conducted evaluations of the E-Verify Program, a web--based system that allows employers to verify new employees’ employment eligibility through a secure Internet connection.
Research Facilities Survey
Under the direction of Congress, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has conducted the Survey of Science and Engineering Research Facilities (Facilities Survey) approximately every two years since 1986 to assess the capacities and needs of research facilities. The goal of the Facilities Survey is to provide a broad, quantitative picture of the inventory and condition of existing science and engineering research facilities at research-performing academic institutions.
Race to the Top Program Monitoring
The Race to the Top program is built on the framework of comprehensive reform in four core education reform areas: standards and assessments that prepare students for success in college and the workplace; recruiting, developing, retaining, and rewarding effective teachers and principals; building data systems; and turning around the lowest-performing schools. Westat created a comprehensive website that creatively displays all the state-reported APR data. The website shows comparison to NAEP data in the student outcomes section. The site, developed in Drupal, has over 100,000 data points that are displayed in an interactive manner.
