Procedures Manual for Student Surveys.
Boynton, Thomas J.
This manual contains information for conducting regular student surveys at Kalamazoo Valley Community College. Questionnaires, designed for new, returning, and former student populations, are presented together with the methods by which the instruments should be administered. Guidelines for data analysis and report writing are also outlined. The three questionnaires were constructed in accordance with a master blueprint that defined five major dimensions into which specific information items fall: demographic factors, including age, sex, marital status, and race; general factors, listing items of general interest to various key staff members; economic factors, including financial independence, difficulties, and related information; educational factors, covering student goals and curriculum; and service and facilities factors, including items pertaining to cafeteria, library, testing, job placement, etc. Particular items for each major category were chosen from an "item pool" derived from several types of student questionnaires. The best methods for administering each questionnaire, task time-tables for each survey, coding and data processing, data analysis techniques, and various written report types are reviewed. Copies of each survey instrument are appended. (TR)
