A Survey of Student Experiences, Spring, 1973.
Litwin, James L.
The Modular Achievement Program (MAP) at Bowling Green State University was designed to offer students an alternative experience for the freshman year. The experience would include small classes, a student-oriented staff, career workshops and an innovative curriculum. This document describes and reports the findings of a survey of student experiences emphasizing five areas: class-related, involvement, sources of difficulty and help, alienation, and student perceptions of change. The MAP sample consisted of 120 students representing 65 percent of the MAP population. Two non-MAP populations totaling 150 students were also included in the survey. Results indicated that students in MAP did have an experience in the expected direction given the goals and emphasis in the MAP project. MAP students reported that the classes they experienced stimulated discussion, exploration, and continued learning outside of the classroom scene. The quality and amount of help MAP students felt they received from faculty and residence hall people and counselors was greater than other groups received. Additional findings and student comments are included. Related documents concerning components of the MAP program include HE 005 102, 005 083, 005 082, 005 081, 005 080, 005 101, 005 077, and 005 079. (MJM)
