University SIRS Scores, 1998-2004

  1. 1. University SIRS Mean Scores 1998-2004 Center for University Scholars
  2. 2. Preparation for Class Variable <ul><li>Mean scores for this variable decline over time. </li></ul><ul><li>Like most of these variables, scores are higher in spring than for fall semesters. </li></ul><ul><li>After the first semester, standard deviations are stable within the range of .63 to .70. </li></ul>
  3. 4. Organization of the Course Variable <ul><li>Spring scores are significantly higher than fall ones (except for Spring 2003). </li></ul><ul><li>Otherwise the scores are fairly stable. </li></ul><ul><li>After the first semester, standard deviations are stable within the range of .72 to .82. </li></ul>
  4. 6. Receptiveness to Students’ Viewpoints Variable <ul><li>Its mean scores generally decline until Spring 2004 with a steep decline for the Fall 2001 semester. </li></ul><ul><li>After the first semester, standard deviations are stable within the range of .79 to .90. </li></ul>
  5. 8. Availability for Help Variable <ul><li>Its mean scores generally decline until Spring 2004 with a steep decline for the Fall 2001 semester. </li></ul><ul><li>After the first semester, standard deviations are stable within the range of .71 to .78 </li></ul>
  6. 10. Freedom to Ask Questions Variable <ul><li>Except for Spring 2003, spring semester scores are significantly higher than fall ones. </li></ul><ul><li>After the first semester, standard deviations are stable within the range of .71 to .80. </li></ul>
  7. 12. Concern with Students’ Learning Variable <ul><li>Except for Spring 2003, spring semester scores are significantly higher than fall ones. </li></ul><ul><li>After the first semester, standard deviations are stable within the range of .76 to .86. </li></ul>
  8. 14. Communication Variable <ul><li>Except for Spring 2003, spring semester scores are significantly higher than fall ones. </li></ul><ul><li>After the first semester, standard deviations are stable within the range of .82 to .91. </li></ul>
  9. 16. Major Points Variable <ul><li>Except for Spring 2003, spring semester scores are significantly higher than fall ones. </li></ul><ul><li>After the first semester, standard deviations are stable within the range of .71 to .81. </li></ul>
  10. 18. Evaluation Variable <ul><li>Except for Spring 2003, spring semester scores are markedly higher than fall ones. </li></ul><ul><li>There was a .10 decline in Fall 2001, not fully regained. </li></ul><ul><li>After the first semester, standard deviations are stable within the range of .71 to .80. </li></ul>
  11. 20. Enthusiasm Variable <ul><li>It declines over time punctuated by its highest point in Spring 1999 until Spring 2004. </li></ul><ul><li>After the first semester, standard deviations are stable within the range of .77 to .87. </li></ul>
  12. 22. Time Management Variable <ul><li>One of the more stable variables over time, it is basically flat until the Spring 2004 semester. </li></ul><ul><li>After the first semester, standard deviations are stable within the range of .75 to .80. </li></ul>
  13. 24. Course Objectives Variable <ul><li>It declines over time with a high point in Spring 1999, but improves dramatically for Spring 2004. </li></ul><ul><li>After the first semester, standard deviations are stable within the range of .68 to .77. </li></ul>
  14. 26. Evaluation v. Objectives Variable <ul><li>Until Spring 2004, its mean scores declined except for a high point in Spring 2004. </li></ul><ul><li>After the first semester, standard deviations are stable within the range of .75 to .84. </li></ul>
  15. 28. Meeting Class Variable <ul><li>The most distinctive trend line, this variable’s scores have declined since Fall 1998 and been flat for the last two semesters. </li></ul><ul><li>After the first semester, standard deviations are stable within the range of .62 to .69. </li></ul>
  16. 30. Fair Evaluation Variable <ul><li>It declines over time until Spring 2004. </li></ul><ul><li>There are steep declines for Fall 2001 and Spring 2003. </li></ul><ul><li>After the first semester, standard deviations are stable within the range of .72 to .77. </li></ul>
  17. 32. Intellectual Challenge Variable <ul><li>Until Spring 2004, its mean scores for fall semesters were significantly lower than in spring semesters. </li></ul><ul><li>After the first semester, standard deviations are stable within the range of .80 to .89. </li></ul>
  18. 34. Core Courses and Other Undergraduate Courses <ul><li>According to the literature, majors rank their departmental courses higher than non-majors </li></ul><ul><li>Above tendency most pronounced in non-science majors taking core courses in mathematics and sciences </li></ul>
  19. 36. Undergraduate Courses and Graduate Courses <ul><li>Overall, graduate students rate their courses more favorably than do undergraduates. </li></ul>
