Kapi'olani Community College Report on the Results of the 1999 Current Student Survey.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Kapiolani Community Coll.
The Current Student Survey was administered in October 1999 to 659 students. Relationships with the instructor, other students, and the counselors were among those aspects that received the highest ratings, along with a number of items dealing with the quality of instruction and knowledge received. Student Congress and its sponsored activities were prominently classified as the least satisfactory aspect of the institution. Half of the students did not know of the availability of workshops. Every aspect of the institution measured in this survey was rated above average. Food Service and Health majors provided more favorable responses than students in other majors, and Liberal Arts students provided the least favorable responses. No specific satisfaction trend was observed as a function of the length of time at the College, but native English speakers reported significantly higher satisfaction than non-native speakers did. Academic Support and Services ranked highest in this survey, while the Overall category ranked lowest. Items with the highest level of satisfaction over the nine-year period dealt with the Climate and with instruction. All items with the lowest levels of satisfaction during the same period dealt exclusively with Student Congress. Appended in this report are the Survey Form, Statistics, and Respondents' Comments.
