Crossing Institutional Boundaries: Changing Common Perceptions.
Clayton, Maria A.
This paper presents the portion of the collaborative project which discusses: (1) the vehicle which was developed for gathering data and the method of implementation; (2) an overview of the general perceptions held by students before beginning the collaborative project; (3) the shifts indicated by the descriptive data; and (4) observations based on these indicators. The paper explains that the survey itself consists of 11 pairs of prompts that ask students to indicate the responses that most closely represent their attitudes/beliefs about three types of institutions of higher education: 2-year public, 4-year public, and 4-year private. It states that the pre-project surveys were first distributed to the students on the day the essay assignment was introduced along with a brief explanation of purpose; the post-project survey was distributed two or three weeks after concluding the project. The paper reports the results and discusses them in detail; the Institutional Perceptions Questionnaire is attached. (NKA)
