Student Reactions to Waubonsee Community College. Survey #2: Two Years Later.
Vojtisek, James R.
As a follow-up to a 1975 study of Waubonsee Community College (WCC), a survey was undertaken in spring 1977 to determine the strong and weak points of WCC, to gain an overall view of student attitudes, and to provide data for later comparison. The survey instrument, Student Reactions to College, was administered to a random sample of 555 WCC students. Of the 174 items, only 22 were found to have significantly different responses from the previous study, including student approval of food services, a preference for graded courses, and an approval of student government. Also expressed was a preference for continuing compulsory student fees, and a greater difficulty compared to 1975 respondents with math, reading expectations, and talking with teachers outside the class. Overall the college received the same favorable rating as in 1975. Appended tables give the rankings of the median scores for 1977 and 1975 along with Spearman rank order correlation values. (KJC)
