Thanks for your comments, concerns and questions about the IT Skills Survey. This survey was developed over a long time period by people from several UVM depts who volunteered to help create it. It is probably in need of updating and refinement as technology changes. The back-end data base issues have been a real stumbling block, which is why it took so long to get this posted to the Web. I'd welcome help from anyone who wants to volunteer some time to help with the refinement of the survey and the data collection portion.
