The results are in for this year’s Study Issue Survey, and I’ve typed up a report, which you can read here. Thank you to everyone who responded. The response this year was terrific. And once again, you folks surprised me in at least one way with your specific responses.
This year’s results were unusual in one particular way. In past years, many of the study issues have provoked very strong reactions among survey-takers, often polarizing, but usually with survey-takers clearly indicating a “rank” or “drop” preference for most study issues. This year’s survey was marked with a whole lot of “meh” reactions to many issues. A handful still generated strong reactions, but most found pretty even distributions of “rank”, “drop”, “defer”, or “left unranked” responses.
