Continuing Student Survey Results, Fall 1990.
Adams, Dorcas M.; Rowzie, Gay
In fall 1990, a sample of continuing students in upper-division courses at Midlands Technical College (MTC) was surveyed to gather information about students' demographic characteristics; employment status; evaluation of MTC's marketing materials; source of income for education; reasons for selecting MTC; evaluation of class scheduling; and evaluation of MTC services. Continuing students in 62 selected classes were surveyed, resulting in 627 usable surveys. Study findings, including comparisons with a similar study conducted in 1988, indicated the following: (1) 70% of the respondents were unmarried, 74% were white, and 56% were female; (2) 87% planned to return to return to MTC the following quarter; (3) 37% were employed full-time, and an additional 45% worked part-time; (4) 72% of the 1990 respondents and 63% of the 1988 respondents rated the MTC catalog as "very helpful"; (5) in both 1988 and 1990, the top three sources of student funding for college were personal income (57%), family income (33%), and family savings (21%); (6) 70% of the respondents indicated that a major reason for attending MTC was the college's course offerings, while 67% cited the college's low cost; and (7) in both 1988 and 1990, over 85% of the students expressed satisfaction with admissions, registration, and advisement.
