New Zealand Educational Theses (NZET) Database survey
The New Zealand Educational Theses (NZET) Database is an important resource, developed by NZCER’s information services and hosted on our website. We’re conducting a survey in order to improve it. We are interested in hearing both from people who have used the database and also those who haven’t, as that can also give us useful information.
What do we want to know? It’s a quick online survey which asks what people are using the database for and how it has helped their research. We’re interested in what subjects they’ve searched on and if there are subjects they couldn’t find in the database. We would also like to know what improvements we could make. We’re keen to get responses from as many people as possible, so please check out the database and tell us what you think. There are vouchers to be won.
