Summary of the 1999 CBC CCSEQ with Comparisons to 1996 Results and 1999 Statewide Responses.
Columbia Basin Coll., Pasco, WA.
In October of 1999, Columbia Basin College (CBC) (Washington), along with 21 other colleges in the area, administered the Community College Student Experiences Questionnaire (CCSEQ) to its students. The survey collected information on student demographics, quality of effort, perceived gains, satisfaction, and courses taken. This document provides a summary of the findings at CBC, based on the responses of 775 students, and compares them with statewide data. Highlights include: (1) the CBC student tends to have a higher household income than other students in the state with 50% claiming an annual salary of nearly $40,000; (2) 11% of CBC's students are Hispanic, 6% more than the state average; (3) 59% reported pursuing an A.A. degree; (4) 68% reported plans to transfer to a four-year institution in the future; (5) students seem to be making little use of library, art, music, and theatre activities on campus; (6) 42% reported using a computer tutorial to learn materials for a course; (7) 84% reported that at CBC they have acquired skills for a specific job or type of work; (8) 80% reported having made at least some progress toward writing more clearly and effectively at CBC; (9) two-thirds responded that they would choose CBC again if they had to start college again; and (10) 72% thought their courses were worthwhile. The document contains numerous figures and charts. Appendices include 1999 CCSEQ Questionnaire and Question Frequencies. (EMH)
