An Analysis and Discussion of a Reading Survey of Students' Backgrounds and Expectations.
Reed, Keflyn X.
A survey was administered in September 1994 to 226 students enrolled in reading courses at Bishop State Community College to gain information about the students' reading habits and experiences and their expectations from the courses in which they were enrolled. Results indicated that: (1) math was chosen by 29% of subjects as their favorite subject but by 38% of the subjects as their least favorite high school subject; (2) fiction was the favorite type of book to read; (3) "Martin" was the favorite television show; (4) sports was the favorite hobby, and reading was the second-favorite hobby; (5) 42% were generally positive about reading textbooks; (6) 46% took the course because they wanted to improve comprehension; (7) 88 students thought they should study more; and (8) most students would prefer to work on assignments with one partner. (The survey instrument is attached.) (RS)
