Help create an accessible, equitable path to licensure by participating in our Analysis of Practice study! This week, we launched the final piece of our Analysis of Practice: an industry-wide survey aimed at better understanding the diverse range of current architecture practice, as well as how the profession may change in the next 5-10 years.

Take the Survey

The Analysis of Practice is a multi-party research effort. Results from the study will guide updates to NCARB’s programs and services, including the national experience program and licensing exam.

NCARB and our member licensing boards are working together to ensure architectural regulation encourages better representation in the profession. You can help by taking the Analysis of Practice survey. By getting feedback from the entire AEC industry, we can ensure the path to licensure is accessible for individuals of all backgrounds.

How to Participate in the Survey

  1. For the best user experience, use a desktop computer or laptop, rather than on your phone or tablet.
  2. Go to and create a survey account—this will help save your progress in case you want to stop taking the survey and return later.
  3. Enter your demographic information, and then choose a survey topic to start with.
  4. There are 12 survey topics, from ethics to specializations. We encourage you to complete all 12 so our results are as valid as possible. This will take approximately 50 minutes. Your responses will be saved at the end of each section.
  5. When you’re done, feel free to share the survey with your colleagues—including those in related professions like engineering or construction.

The Analysis of Practice will close at 5 p.m. EST on Friday, April 29—please complete all sections before that date.

About the Results

This survey was commissioned by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) and is being conducted by Alpine Testing Solutions to ensure unbiased, high-quality results.
