College Success Questionnaire

Survey Date: 
annually since 2001; administered at the end of March/in early April
Population Surveyed: 
First Year Students (in class); in early years also Sophomores (electronically)
Instrument Type: 
in-house

The survey instrument was originally developed by the Retention Task Force for early feedback on students' satisfaction with various aspects of their college experiences and to better understand transition issues from high school to college as well as from the first year to the sophomore year.

Several actions have resulted in direct response to student feedback, including: online registration, block housing,the taxi service, lifting the restriction of campus jobs to FY students, and expanding the role and mission of advising at St. Lawrence. As our understanding of retention issues and our effectiveness in addressing them increased, the survey has undergone several modifications. E.g., survey instrument also includes items relevant to the Institution's AAC&U Engaged Learning Grant, Teagle Sophomore Grant, and Teagle Assessment Grant. More recently, the CSQ has been a combination of a national assessment instrument (such as the HERI YFCY survey and the HEDS Research Practices Survey) and our in-house questionnaire.
