A survey of freshman perceptions, 2009
This document contains a list of statements that our Freshmen agreed or disagreed with regarding their experiences at EWU. The survey was administered by the Office of Institutional Research, Demography & Assessment in late winter and early spring of 2009 and the questions were created by an external researcher for a Lumina grant. Agreement was determined by the mean of the responses to each question within a 4 point likert scale: "Strongly Disagree", "Disagree", "Agree" or "Strongly Agree". Statistics are not included in order to  focus on the general perceptions of our freshman. Specific data are available from the Office of Institutional Research for those that are interested in the statistical details.
