Survey Program

In early 1994, the Superintendent designated the Institutional Assessment Division (HQ USAFA/A9A) as the Office of Primary Responsibility for Academy surveys.

Survey program was established to standardize procedures, ensure that command staff are informed of ongoing survey and research efforts, monitor and minimize burden placed on cadets and other respondents, and facilitate the sharing of results.

The Survey Program provides guidance for:

  • The collection of attitude, opinion, preference, and intent data from cadet candidates, cadets, and permanent party personnel
  • Support of survey requests from external or non-USAFA individuals
  • Surveys involving information on USAFA cadet candidates or cadets conducted by USAFA faculty, staff or cadets
  • Exceptions to program requirements for surveys and cadet surveys conducted as part of an academic course
  • Voluntariness, protection of the identity of survey respondents, and release of survey research results

Survey Requests:
Those who seek approval to administer a survey must provide a copy of their instrument along with information specified in para 2 of AFAI 36-2601 USAFASUP, at least six weeks prior to administration to HQ USAFA/A5/8/9.

A5/8/9 will review the survey design and administration plan (or help develop if needed) and coordinate approval through appropriate departments/organizations.

To learn more about surveys, the AF Survey Program provides guidance in constructing and administering surveys.

Survey efforts should be linked to Superintendent's Focus Areas if possible with identified benefits to USAFA and a feedback plan to the survey respondents.

Once approved, A5/8/9 will issue a USAFA Survey Control Number (SCN).

Administration support and analysis asistance is available.

If you are interested in doing a survey, please take a minute to fill out our survey request form and email it to the survey administrator (below).
