The Chancellor’s Senior Surveys on the Undergraduate Experience at UIUC

In 1989, a taskforce appointed by the Chancellor created a questionnaire to be administered to all graduating seniors at UIUC. The results of the survey, the Chancellor said, "will be useful in responding to requests for information on how our students feel about the educational experience they have had as undergraduates here and in identifying problems on campus which need our attention." The survey was administered each year from 1990 to 1993. Due to the consistency of results the survey was not administered again until 1996. The 1996 survey was modified to include a section of items asking students to assess their entering and exiting abilities. Due to the usefulness of this new section for campus initiatives involved in the assessment of student outcomes, the campus decided to restart annual administrations of the survey. The survey was offered through 2012. During the 2015-2016 academic year, a committee redesigned this long-standing survey to increase its effectiveness and usefulness. During the 2016-2017 academic year, the revised survey was administered for the first time.
