The right college for me The right college for me Presentation Transcript

  • THE RIGHT COLLEGE FOR ME Jessica Silvan
  • THE EXPERIMENT Purpose: To see what colleges fit my needs and wants based on a survey of 21 questions on a weighted point system of 320 points, with the most ideal answers having the most points and the worst answers with the least points. Theory: A school located in an urban area with either a fashion or cosmetology degree for fewer than 20,000 dollars a year with a couple thousand students with either dorms on campus or affordable apartments near by to live in, with several social activities to meet people each month would be a good school choice for me. Hypothesis: I think the FIDM of LA would be a good choice for me because it’s located in the heart of LA, has a degree available in fashion design, has 4 thousand students, costs $20,000 a year, offer apartments to single students, and have activities each week for students to participate in.
  • List of Schools  Ideal:  Art Institute of Seattle  Art Institute of New York  Miami International Institute of Art and Design  FIDM LA  Likely:  FIDM Orange County  Paul Mitchell in Spokane, WA  Gene Juarez Academy  Green River Community College  Fall Back Plan  BYU Provo  BYU-I  BYU- Hawaii
  • EXPERIMENTAL METHOD The researcher takes colleges they would look into and put them against questions based off of their needs and wants for the school. My questions are based of a 320 point system. The more important questions like how much tuition costs are weighed more heavily than a question asking if the dorm rooms have quiet hours. 250-320 points would be an ideal school, 201- 249 would be a likely college I’d get into, and below 200 would be not an ideal school. 350 300 250 200 150 100 50 0 Ideal Likely Not Ideal

  • STATISTICAL ANALYSIS As it turns out, FIDM LA was the best school for me but I was also to surprised to see that one of my more likely schools, FIDM OC, to get into schools was above the ideal line. Many of my schools scored at the likely area, and the schools I expected to fall below did in fact fall there. Mean: 217 Median: 220: The mean and median were most of my schools were my mostly likely to get into. It shows most of my schools had about an equal amount of points. Standard Deviation: 36.9: The scores didn’t vary very much because all the questions were fairly balanced out, only on a few questions would I say the results might have been skewed.
  • SUMMARY I think the overall quality of the experiment is good quality. For most of my questions it was difficult to find the answers because they weren’t reported or hidden within the website I was searching. I think I could have been more accurate in the findings and looked at more websites to compare answers to my questions. I proved my hypothesis correct since I already had a few questions geared directly to that college.
  • IMPROVEMENTS I could add more questions dealing to the course work or more specifically to life on campus since I only has one or two questions that were directed towards that. I feel like I should haven’t been so biased towards one school while creating the survey.
