About the ECAR Surveys
Since 2009 the UW has participated in the ECAR Undergraduate Student Technology Study, an annual survey that reaches over 100 institutions. The most recent benchmark report, comparing UW to other doctoral institutions, is now available. The infographic above showcases data from the 2013 survey about how UW students are using particular technologies to support their academic success. A complete report of findings from the ECAR 2013 survey, as well as information about past and current surveys is available from ECAR at:

In 2014 ECAR is piloting a faculty survey. Both the student and faculty surveys will go out in Winter Quarter 2014. The Academic Services unit of UW-IT works with ECAR to administer the surveys at the UW. The ECAR surveys provide a valuable opportunity for the UW community to learn about the types of technology students and faculty use, how they use the technology, and for what purposes. This nationwide survey also gives the UW a chance to see how technology use compares with our peer institutions.
