Expanding Students' Voice in Assessment through Senior Survey Research. Professional File. Number 96, Summer 2005
Delaney, Anne Marie
Association for Institutional Research (NJ1)
Based on a trend study of 970 graduating seniors, this paper presents a model for designing senior survey research studies to achieve optimum impact on assessment and policy development. The paper demonstrates how the link between research and policy was achieved through the conceptual organization, design and statistical analyses of the study. Confirming findings from previous research, this study identified some unique predictors of the two major dependent variables. The perception of having gained in-depth knowledge of a field was the strongest predictor of overall satisfaction, while satisfaction with the campus social life was the strongest predictor of the likelihood of choosing the same college again. (Contains 8 tables, 3 figures and 2 endnotes.)
