Research Study for Station Education Services

CPB seeks to engage a qualified researcher (Contractor) to conduct a study that will include:

  1. a brief (20 questions or fewer) survey of approximately 172 public television stations about their education services (Station Survey), in order to update public media's knowledge and understanding of stations' education services, which were last measured by a station survey conducted in 2007;
  2. case studies investigating how eight stations participating in the American Graduate initiative changed their internal practices or approach as a result of their participation (Case Studies); and
  3. an environmental scan to determine community needs and the services that public media can provide to meet those needs (Environmental Scan).

Moderated Online Focus Groups and Data Analysis

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting ("CPB") is seeking proposals to conduct moderated online focus groups over the next year. Each focus group is expected to require multiple sessions. The consultant must design the focus groups in order to gather the thoughts, opinions, knowledge and beliefs of a number of leaders throughout public media on critical issues facing public media, as well as the impact, success, strengths and challenges facing specific projects funded in whole or in part by CPB.
