This April, more than 80,000 architects, interns, and educators will be invited to participate in the 2012 NCARB Practice Analysis of Architecture Survey. As the foundation of NCARB’s 2012 Practice Analysis, the survey is designed to help identify the tasks and knowledge/skills necessary for the independent practice of architecture.
Survey findings will help drive the Architect Registration Examination, inform the Intern Development Program, and guide NCARB’s response to the National Architectural Accrediting Board 2013 Accreditation Review Conference. The results will also be used to inform the Council’s continuing education policies.
We know your time is valuable—and so is your expertise; NCARB is asking for approximately an hour of your time. This survey, which can be completed in multiple short sessions, will inform several important programs and policies pertinent to the profession.
Survey participants will benefit from enhanced navigation and graphics, as well as new techniques such as matrix sampling, which tailors the number and focus of questions each participant receives.
When you receive the electronic survey, please respond—it’s an important opportunity to give back to the profession and share your expertise. It’s time well spent.

The greater the number of architects, interns, and educators that complete the survey, the more depth and relevance the collected data will have across the profession.
It is more than data collection—it is about the future of the profession.
