This message is being sent on behalf of two of my friends/colleagues (Dr. Bolliger at Univ of Wyoming and Dr. Martin at UNC-Charlotte). They would really like some more respondents, so if you could spare a few minutes, they would certainly appreciate it. The advantage to you? You get to see a survey designed by two faculty doing research in an area that might also interest you. The deadline is March 25, 2016. Here's the solicitation:
