CIMER Assessment Platform

Overview

The CIMER Assessment Platform is an electronic survey platform housed at the Center for the Improvement of Mentored Experiences in Research (CIMER). The Platform has key features that allow researchers to easily administer surveys, access data, and compare data across groups. Key features include:

  • Project autonomy to determine data collection design
  • Multiple administrative levels to control access to project data
  • Survey administration options for individual user or paired user data collection
  • Automatically generated reports and raw datasets at the individual level (each event) and aggregate level (across multiple events)

Platform Usage

The Platform is used by the CIMER team to collect data on evidence-based and culturally-responsive interventions. This includes mentorship education interventions that are part of CIMER Curricula such as Entering Mentoring, Mentoring Up, and Culturally Aware Mentoring workshops. 

The Platform is also used by external groups who collaborate with CIMER to evaluate different aspects of research mentorship and the mentor/mentee relationship.

Evaluation Collaboration

CIMER is dedicated to partnering with external groups to improve research mentoring relationships for mentees and mentors at all career stages through the development, implementation, and study of evidence-based and culturally-responsive interventions. Below are questions to consider if you are interested in a partnership with CIMER:

Are you working on a project that contributes to the science of research mentorship? 

Are you interested in collaborating with CIMER on measure development, testing, or the assessment of outcomes related to research mentorship? 

Are you submitting a grant proposal and interested in consulting with CIMER on measures to assess your project outcomes?
