An Evaluation of Life in the Residence Halls at Indiana University from an Ecosystem Perspective: 1985.
Bourassa, Donna; And Others
Studies examining life in the Indiana University residence halls from an ecosystem perspective have been conducted annually since 1978 to ascertain how students evaluate a series of issues related to residential living. The 1985 study, the eighth in a series, involved a representative sample of 824 students drawn from the residence centers. The instrument used was similar to one used with previous assessment projects. A Likert scale was used for the forced-choice items. After completing the questionnaire, students were asked to go back over the questionnaire and identify up to five items about which they felt strongly. The questionnaire examined satisfaction with programming, residence hall staff, student government, student publications, study conditions, and food services. Responses for residence hall programs, residence hall staff, student government, publications, and food service were strongly positive. Study conditions were rated as mildly positive. Students seemed basically satisfied with their environment. (Five data tables are included, one comparing the results of the 1985 study with those from previous years. A copy of the questionnaire is appended.) (ABL)
