A well-designed survey instrument that is used effectively can gather dependable information that a researcher needs. This study examines the evaluation of a survey instrument which has been designed by the researcher to measure the integration of information technology in higher education. In order to evaluate the instrument and to gather feedback, the forms of the evaluation and instrument were emailed to 100 experts at 12 universities. The evaluation form for experts includes demographic data, clarity, and relevancy of the designed items which were used to measure the degree and frequency of information technology used by faculty members of higher education. Responses from experts who completed the evaluation forms at the end of each survey were analyzed. The majority of respondents (88%) indicated that the items in the survey instrument for degree of information technology use is clear and 91 % responded as related. 89.6 % proofed that the items in the frequency of information technology is clear and 87.6 % responded as related. The experts gave constructive suggestions and comments for the improvement of the survey instrument. Finally, the analysis elucidates potential impact towards the research instrument and outlines possibilities for further research.
