Partner Opportunities

The Center for Distance Education Research (CDER) has several studies in which we are looking for institutional partners for data collection. Interested in being a CDER partner? The data collection may consist of CDER gathering institutional data and/or the administration of a survey to your distance education students. Please complete this form to show your interest.

Some research studies at CDER will require student demographic and performance data for matching with survey data and cross-institutional analysis.

  • Student identifiers to facilitate a matching process
  • Student demographics to ensure demographics of interest are addressed and accurate for analysis
  • Student outcomes (e.g., course grade, course completion) aligning with the student and course for analysis
