CSULB Student Satisfaction 2002: Talent Development

Colleges and universities are intensely interested in understanding the extent to which they develop the talents of their students, both cognitively and affectively. In the CSULB Student Satisfaction Survey of 2002, students were asked to rate themselves in each of the following skills before and after attending CSULB. Paired samples t-tests revealed that in nearly all cases, students reported significant growth in key skill areas. Responses were coded on a scale of 1-5, with 1=low and 5=high self-ratings.
