Enhance Student Satisfaction With Their Educational Experience

 

Student satisfaction survey

All seniors and graduate accounting students complete the SOA Student Satisfaction Survey. This instrument captures quantitative rankings measuring faculty, knowledge area coverage, professional skills coverage, and pedagogy. Students are also asked to respond to two high-level questions as to whether attending the USU SOA was a wise choice and also whether they would recommend the SOA to other potential students.

Student course evaluations

The Utah State University Teacher/Course Evaluation is administered in all SOA courses at the end of each semester. This instrument contains four sections of quantitative rankings (general, course information, instruction, and student demographic data) and provides space for written comments on the back.
