FYI Body: Dear Linguists,

You are invited to complete a brief survey on Learning Outcomes in
undergraduate Linguistics programs. The survey will take about 15
minutes to complete. I intend to use the results of this survey to
develop a validated Concept Inventory for Linguistics.

There are no known risks to completing this survey. You may skip any
questions you do not want to answer, and you may stop at any time. I
have attached a copy of a letter of information about the study that
gives the full details. This study has been reviewed and cleared by the
McMaster Research Ethics Board. If you any have concerns or
questions about your rights as a participant or about the way the study
is being conducted you can contact:
