Make a Request IRI’s request process is for requests of institutional or operational data about UVU that is not already available on our website, assistance conducting field research, or for assistance collecting and analyzing survey data from UVU constituents. If you have a survey request, please read UVU Policy 132.

Survey Brochure IRI supports survey research on campus by providing samples of students, faculty, and staff as well as assisting with research and analysis. UVU Policy 132 designates IRI to respond to researchers’ requests for institutional data and requests for assistance in collecting data related to UVU constituents. This brochure describes the process for conducting surveys of UVU constituents through IRI and the valuable assistance that IRI can offer in designing and executing research projects.

Sample Size Calculator IRI surveys are generally based on samples of the student population, which is more efficient and nearly as accurate as contacting every member of the group of interest. This tool will help determine the number of respondents needed to produce reliable results. IRI recommends a 95% confidence level with a 5% confidence interval for most surveys to balance accuracy and efficiency. To obtain the desired number of cases, IRI uses a simple random sample of the target population--unless a particular sampling design is required. IRI will adjust the sample as needed to account for typical response rates and to obtain the desired number of respondents.
