A Multilevel Analysis on Student Learning in Colleges and Universities.
Hu, Shouping; Kuh, George D.
This study tested a learning productivity model for undergraduates at four-year colleges and universities using hierarchical linear modeling. Student level data were from 44,328 full-time enrolled undergraduates from 120 four-year colleges and universities who completed the College Student Experiences Questionnaire between 1990 and 1997. Institutional level data came from various sources. Institutional characteristics had effects on student engagement and gains from colleges and universities, and the institutional effects on gains were through effects on engagement, effects on gains, or effects on the conversion rates from effort to gains. The effects also varied depending on the types of gains students had from colleges and universities. The findings have implications for the conversations on collegiate quality and research on college impacts on students. Three appendixes contain instrument scale items and results from the analyses. (Contains 1 figure, 4 tables, and 37 references.) (Author/SLD)
