Obtaining feedback from industries is vital to reviewing curriculum content of schools preparing a competent workforce to meet industries’ needs. Florida Makes in partnership with Polk State College (PSC) and FLATE (Florida Advanced Technology Education) are requesting your extremely valuable participation. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. 

Section 1 is for Technical Skills and requests two responses: one for the importance of the item and the second for the frequency performed. Rank the importance responses using a scale from 1 to 5, with 5 being "Most Valuable" and 1 being "Least Important." Also, if appropriate, you may select "N/A" (Not Applicable) as an option. For frequency performed, select one of: "Never", "Sometimes" or "Always". If you select N/A for the importance response, please select "Never" for the frequency response.

Section 2 is for personal and teamwork skills and requests responses for only the level of importance and uses the same 1-5 scale as stated in section 1.

The survey will automatically conclude when you finish answering the questions and click on the “Done” button.

We sincerely appreciate you taking the time to provide us your valuable feedback and will share the results when all the data has been compiled.
