Graduating Senior Surveys

After Spring 2006, the traditional paper version of the graduating senior survey was eliminated. After pilot efforts during 2007, the survey was moved online and the questions were modified to better meet the needs of evaluating various aspects of Western Illinois University campus life and academic experience from the viewpoint of our graduating seniors. This page provides easy access to the graduating senior survey results beginning with 2008.

 

Multi-Year Trend Results

Having completed three full years of the new online senior survey provides an opportunity to compare results across years, combining all 2008 graduates and comparing their results to those of all 2009 graduates and to all 2010 graduates. This three-year trend comparison is similar to that used in other areas of assessing Western's strategic planning success.
