Have you considered presenting your findings at the RUME comference? (Research on Undergraduate Mathematics Education)

Hi, My name is Kostas Stroumbakis and I am a doctoral student at Teacher's College, Columbia University. For my dissertation, I want to compare views on what makes adequate preparation for the first collegelevel calculus course. To this end, I have developed three online surveys in which I ask participants to rate various precalculus topics on their importance, as prerequisites, for success in calculus.
If you teach, or have taught recently, (1) PreCalculus (postsecondary), (2) Calculus I (postsecondary), or (3) PreCalculus (high school) I would really appreciate it if you took a few minutes to complete my survey. It will take about 15 minutes. Please follow the corresponding link below.
Also, if you can help to snowball this or suggest other venues for reaching qualified participants, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you, Kostas Stroumbakis ks2470@columbia.edu
1) College PreCalculus http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=ezpB3jmwybSDmnNJVz4PpQ_3d_3d
2) College Calculus I (the standard course) http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=VIRqAOphQ9gGVgRAYgpgzQ_3d_3d
3) High School PreCalculus http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=Gd63WE3spu9MkFfbPnSEQg_3d_3d
PS I have posted a similar request to other groups to which you might belong. I apologize if I am cluttering your inbox.
