Evaluation of a Student Questionnaire Developed for Rowan College of New Jersey School of Education and Related Professional Studies.
Wieland, Theodora A.
Results from an alumni survey for the School of Education and Related Professional Studies of Rowan College (New Jersey) were analyzed and evaluated. The survey had been developed as a result of a previous educational practicum. Research questions were how well the School had prepared its graduates, which program goals and objectives the graduates found most useful, and whether there were areas in which the School could prepare its students better. Data collected were first presented to the individual departments of the School, and were then interpreted for the entire School. The questionnaire was sent to 300 recent graduates. Of these, 134, or 45%, were returned. Alumni felt that they had received the proper training and necessary help to feel confidant in their present jobs. They did think that the School should investigate increased training in the newer technologies needed in teaching and nursing. It was interesting to note that 83.5% of the graduates were enrolled in some form of continuing education, suggesting that the School's goal of creating life-long learners was being achieved. Ways to use the survey data most effectively are discussed. Appendixes contain a description of evaluation committee members, a cover letter, the alumni survey, and questionnaire results by school department. (Contains 11 tables and 16 references.) (SLD)
