Schedule 1: Survey Reporting and Deliverables Description
"Portal" web portal URL is: https://internationaleffectiveness.engineering.illinois.edu/
OTM Technology No. 2017-194, titled "Diagnostic Tool for Engineering Effectiveness in Rural International Societies".
Creator: Ann-Perry Witmer
Brief Description: The Survey provides a list of 41 questions (rated on 5-point Likert scales) to evaluate relative influences of critical non-engineering conditions and guidelines for selection/implementation of technologies within a rural society. The Survey identifies design and implementation strategies that enhance engineered infrastructure sustainability and durability.
"Survey Report": The following information is provided in the Report.
· Column 1 lists the five community influences most likely to affect design, implementation and acceptance of an engineered infrastructure.
· Column 2 shows the raw scores of each influence for the community, based upon scores You provided after observing Your client.
· Column 3 draws upon open and free data from World Bank database of World Development Indicators. Where data are lacking for Your country, those absences are not included in calculations. Religious composition is evaluated using open and free Pew Research Center data.
· Column 4 provides a weighted, relative influence score for Your client community, factoring in national norms to identify the conditions that most strongly govern your client's approach to an engineered infrastructure.
The following information is also provided: Guidelines for interpreting the high and low scores of the contextual influences, and Guidelines as to how to approach the design of the engineering infrastructure.
