Assessment of COVID19 on the impact of academic progress

Purpose

This assessment will capture basic information on the nature of research disruptions and possible mitigation strategies, which will be consolidated and shared with institutional leadership. This assessment is a longitudinal survey, collected in two parts (May and October). Your participation is optional. However, the information recorded will help provide evidence to facilitate crucial decisions in response to the impact of COVID-19 on the student cohort. Importantly, formal documentation of academic disruption will help justify the scale of response required to meet student needs.
