An Entering Student Survey for Urban Institutions
Keywords:Metropolitan Universities, Freshman Students, Assessment
AbstractNational surveys on entering freshmen have not addressed issues important to urban and metropolitan universities. This article describes the development of a survey designed to examine specific characteristics of our institutions ' student populations. The survey may fill a gap by gathering data before students are exposed to the university curriculum and thus establishing a baseline against which changes that may occur during the course of undergraduate study may be measured.
