Students in the Abraham S. Fischler Center for the Advancement of Education Respond to a Satisfaction Survey: A Comparison Between On-Campus Students and Off-Campus Students. Research and Planning Report 96-12.
MacFarland, Thomas W.
This study examined student satisfaction among a sample of on-campus and off-campus students of the Abraham S. Fischler Center for the Advancement of Education at Nova Southeastern University. A total of 1,039 students responded to a survey that focused on demographic and background information, academic programs, and student services. The study found that 80 percent of on-campus students were enrolled in either a master's or specialist program, while nearly two-thirds of all off-campus students were enrolled in doctoral programs. Overall quality of the academic program received a slightly higher rating from off-campus students than from on-campus students, with off-campus respondents providing higher mean ratings than their on-campus counterparts for approximately two-thirds of all survey statements. On-campus respondents indicated higher levels of satisfaction than off-campus students for statements related to the university's technology-based information resource infrastructure. Over 20 percent of all respondents indicated that they would not have attended a college or university if they had not attended NSU. A copy of the survey questionnaire is appended.
