TNCC Admission and Registration Survey.
Bounds, Stuart M.
A survey of currently enrolled students was administered in spring 1978 to assess student opinion regarding the recently implemented on-line admission and registration procedures at Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC). Students were asked to rate each service area--initial contact, admission, counseling, advising, financial aid, registration, tuition, and purchase of textbooks--on a four-point scale ranging from 1.0 (poor) to 4.0 (excellent). Additional personal information on each student was also collected, including data on how, when, and where registration occurred. Results indicated that the survey sample (N=684) was somewhat unrepresentative of the entire student population; particularly underrepresented were part-time and unclassified students. For those students responding (N=436), overall ratings were good in all service areas. Availability of information about the college, the admission procedures, and the bookstore received the highest mean scores (2.95, 2.88, and 2.87, respectively). Faculty advising and the registration process were rated somewhat less favorably, with mean scores of 2.66 and 2.53, respectively. Those items in each of the service areas relating to the helpfulness of the college staff consistently had the highest ratings. Results are displayed in tables and graphs and the survey instrument is appended. (DR)
