Results of the College Diagnostic Questionnaire (CDQ) Fall 1973. Research Report No. 348.
Brandenburg, Dale C.
The 109-item College Diagnostic Questionnaire (CDQ) was designed to assess student attitudes toward a variety of activities occurring before classes begin at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). The CDQ was administered to the 4,502 freshmen (58% of the total freshmen class) who attended the College Diagnostic Testing Session during New Student Week of August 1972. Many of the questions concerned some demographic characteristics of the students; other items attempted to measure attitudes toward financial status, choice of institution, placement/proficiency (P/P) testing, College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) examinations, the Advance Enrollment Program, high school counselors, University admissions information, and the Three-Year Baccalaureate Study. Most of the items were analyzed according to college enrollment, and responses to some questions were compared to data obtained at last year's College Diagnostic Testing Sessions. (Author)
