Graduate Outcomes Survey Program: Guidelines and protocols for Data sharing
For each participating institution and province, the Commission offers complete survey data packages. Each data package includes a custom data file containing only the responses from the institution's or province's graduates, a data dictionary, definitions for derived variables and a copy of the questionnaires.
To gain access to the survey data package, an appropriate representative from the institution/province is required to sign a data sharing agreement. The data-sharing agreement allows the Commission to release the individual responses, so recipients may conduct their own analyses of the data, while ensuring that the confidentiality of the responses is maintained.
A sample data sharing agreement is available here.
