At the end of each semester, we survey students to assess course quality and student satisfaction. Over 520 students provided feedback this Spring, which will help us continue to improve future courses. Some of the high-level takeaways included:
💡 92% of students found courses to be as good or better than other online courses they have taken. 55% of students rated their course strictly better than other online courses.
💡 79% of students found courses to be as good or better than on-campus courses they have taken. 51% of students rated their course strictly better than on-campus courses.
💡 Asked how likely they would be to recommend their course to a classmate, the average student responded 7.7 / 10.0. The most common rating was 10/10, representing one-third of all students.
Beyond these general measures of satisfaction, we ask students to provide feedback on a variety of course elements. Unless otherwise specified in the question, all results are based on a scale of 1-7 where 1 was “Strongly Disagree”, 4 was “Neutral”, and 7 was “Strongly Agree”.
Each column represents a different semester of survey results, showing clear improvements and all-time high results for the Spring semester of 2022 across nearly every measure.
We’ve taken meaningful steps forward as a result of the feedback received from students in the Fall 2021 surveys, and we continue to listen to students to better understand what can be improved. All of the below changes were implemented this past semester to directly respond to prior student feedback:
The projects and assignments
Enjoyable live class time
The flexibility of optional-synchronous
The structure and layout of the course in Canvas
The largest themes of our improvements this semester are creating more flexibility for students in how they engage with the courses and increasing industry and guest speaker involvement. For each item that students would like improved, we have acted with a planned-and-deployed solution in order to continue to remain on-top of the course developments and updates students are looking for.
