This document presents the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems' (NCHEMS) faculty activity survey instrument and discusses the procedural questions involved in conducting an activity survey. Recommended procedures are given where appropriate. Some of the concerns confronting an institution that is initiating an activity survey are identified and discussed, such as: When the survey should be conducted? Should the institution sample faculty or conduct a census? What should be the survey time period? What are the alternative methods of administering the survey? and What is the effect of each of these in the resulting data? Some of the larger issues surrounding a faculty activity analysis are discussed. These include (1) the question of the accuracy and consistency of faculty activity information; (2) the effect that altering the survey instrument has upon the resulting data; and (3) the general question of faculty acceptance of an activity survey.
