State of the Field Survey, 2006
Forum on Education Abroad
In 2006, the Forum on Education Abroad conducted a State of the Field Survey of its membership. This survey is meant to be the first of an annual assessment of what is on the minds of Forum members and, by extension, the field of education abroad in general. The 2006 survey was developed and designed by the Forum Data Committee with input form the Forum Council and it was implemented by the Forum Data Committee. A survey invitation was sent by email on Sept 20, 2006 to each voting member of the Forum. Members who received the email invitation were directed to the survey which was conducted online. The original deadline was Oct 6, but the researchers extended the deadline to Oct 18 in order to try to get a better response rate. In the end 199 members received the invitation to participate and 93 members completed the survey--giving the researchers a 47% response rate. This paper presents some highlights of the preliminary survey results.
