More Emphasis Should Be Placed on Student Attitude When Evaluating the College Experience as this Affects Student’s Educational Performance and Future Career

  • Published 2015

Abstract

Many colleges throughout the nation consider the experience of its undergraduates in classes, research, residence halls, dining, and community involvement. It seems that the standard method to collect data from the students is to have them complete surveys. It is the most efficient way to systematically collect information, especially with the size of some schools. It is believed that when evaluating the college experience, more emphasis should be placed on student attitudes. It is proposed that vetted attitudinal surveys be used to formulate survey items emphasizing attitude, and that these items be incorporated into the SERU survey at Rutgers University. Officials at Rutgers University will be contacted proposing this change.
