Graduating seniors continue to rate Kansas State University highly in many areas. Of the 1,623 respondents (41.6% response rate) to the 2017-18 Senior Survey, over 92% rated their undergraduate experience positively and indicated they would recommend K-State to others.
Offered at the end of each semester by the Office of Assessment, the Senior Survey is designed to give undergraduate students the opportunity to reflect upon their K-State experiences. Results are used to improve the college experience for current and future students by identifying both strengths and areas that need further development. The survey includes questions related to satisfaction with academic programs, intellectual and personal growth, student services, and preparation for a career or graduate school.
Seniors also reported progress in many other academic areas. At least 93% of respondents reported substantial progress in the ability to think critically, the ability to interact positively with people different from themselves, and the ability to participate as team members. High levels of satisfaction were also reported for various offices and services across campus.
Attend this year’s Institute for Student Learning Assessment to learn approaches to effectively and meaningfully assess critical thinking. Faculty from a variety of disciplines will share strategies to assess critical thinking in their classrooms and programs.
