A Survey of Undergraduate Student Opinions.
The results of the Student Reaction to College survey, given to students at Arizona's three public universities, are presented as one of the working papers in the final report of the Arizona Board of Regents' Task Force on Excellence, Efficiency and Competitiveness. Results indicate the following: students from all three universities are very similar in their responses to most survey items, although Northern Arizona University students responded more positively to more items; students from all three universities responded less favorably to specific survey items related to administrative procedures, campus safety, scheduling problems, and fear of loss of personal items by thievery than did the national comparative student group; and undergraduate students at the three universities perceive that the quality of instruction is no better or worse than did a comparative national group. The most robust conclusion is that there are no obvious major problems with the perceptions that undergraduate students have about Arizona's universities when compared to a large group of students from other colleges. Appended are a copy of the survey form, student reactions to college comparative data for four-year college edition, a copy of the letter asking students to participate in the survey, and descriptions of the 18 areas in student reactions to college (e.g., quality and form of instruction, academic performance, grading, studying, planning, and campus climate).
