Overview of This information
1. Type of Information Collection:
Approval of a Revised Collection
2. Title of the Forms:
FBI National Academy: End-of-Session Student Course Questionnaire
FBI National Academy: General Remarks Questionnaire
3. Agency Form Number, if any, and the applicable component of the department sponsoring the collection:
Form Number: 1110-0050
Sponsor: Training Division, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Department of Justice (DOJ)
4. Affected Public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract:
Primary: FBI National Academy students that represent state and local police and sheriffs' departments, military police organizations, and federal law enforcement agencies from the United States and over 150 foreign nations.
Brief Abstract: This collection is requested by FBI National Academy. These questionnaires have been designed to collect feedback from National Academy students regarding their courses and instructors. The results are used to help determine if the National Academy program is functioning as intended and meeting its goals and objectives. We will utilize the students' comments to improve the current curriculum.
5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond:
Approximately 1,000 FBI National Academy students per year will respond to two types of questionnaires. (1) FBI National Academy: End-of-Session Student Course Questionnaire and (2) FBI National Academy: General Remarks Questionnaire. It is predicted we will receive a 75% response rate for both questionnaires. Each student will respond to seven Student Course questionnaires—one for each course they completed. The average time for reading the questionnaire directions is estimated to be two (2) minutes; the time to complete each questionnaire is estimated to be approximately 13 minutes. Thus the total time to complete one Student Course questionnaire is 15 minutes and 105 minutes for all seven questionnaires.
For the FBI National Academy: General Remarks Questionnaire, students will respond to one questionnaire. The average time for reading the questionnaire directions is estimated to be two (2) minutes; the time to complete the questionnaire is estimated to be approximately 10 minutes. Thus the total time to complete the General Remarks Questionnaire is 12 minutes.
The total estimated time for both questionnaires per respondent is approximately 117 minutes or about 2 hours.
6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection:
Given that approximately 75% of those surveyed (or 750) will respond, the total public burden for completing all questionnaires is 1462.5 hours.
