The survey instruments were distributed in class by one-third of the instructors teaching courses at 9:00 a.m. or 7:00 p.m. on Wednesdays. The study report details the procedures of the study and compares the characteristics of the sample and total college population. It presents the responses of day and evening students for each survey item and compares their responses to the Fall 1980 survey with their responses to similar surveys conducted in Fall 1978 and Fall 1976. In addition, the responses of male and female, English and non-English speakers, and day and evening students were compared on questions relating to educational objectives, academic interests, and employment.
