UBC EOAS Graduation Exit Survey, April 2015 Caulkins, Joshua Lee; Jones, Francis; Jolley, Alison Rae

Description

This survey instrument asks graduating students for feedback about how they chose their program, their career goals, and about their perceptions regarding skills learned, types of assignments encountered, general departmental and institutional experiences, and demographics. It was administered as an online survey to students graduating from UBC's Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences in the years 2009 through 2015. Response rates averaged 54% of graduating classes that ranged from 86 through 125 students each year. Results were used to help assess impacts of the Carl Wieman Science Education Initiative and as input for Departmental decisions about program and education improvement priorities. Selected results are used in an article authored by F. Jones, titled "Comparing Student, Instructor, Classroom and Institutional Data to Evaluate a Seven-Year Department-wide Science Education Initiative", to be submitted for peer review in December 2016.
