In the fourth quarter of 2019 The Carpentries collected feedback from community members who took a Carpentries workshop within six months. Find more information about this data collection period on our blog. We are excited to release the results of our long-term survey, and invite community members to use this data to champion The Carpentries far and near.
The results included in this report only cover the data collected in 2019 (between November 1st, 2019 and January 2nd, 2020). This report includes the analysis of 176 responses but most questions are optional and specific questions have less answers.
The majority of long-term survey respondents are graduate students. “Other academic staff” includes Librarians, Research Software Engineers, IT Staff, and Government Research Staff.
The Net Promoter Score (NPS) for our workshops according to the long-term survey is 63. The NPS varies between -100 and +100. It is calculated by substracting the percentage of respondents who are considered “Promoters” (rating of 9 or 10) and the percentage of respondents who are considered “Detractors” (rating equal or below 6). A positive NPS is deemed good, a NPS above 50 is deemed excellent, and an NPS above 70 is exceptional.
