Assess Your Adult Undergraduates and Graduate Students to Increase Their Satisfaction and Persistence
By using the Adult Student Priorities Survey (ASPS), you’ll see what’s important to your adult students and how satisfied they are, along with national benchmark comparison data.
The ASPS is part of the RNL Satisfaction-Priorities Surveys family and is appropriate for surveying adult students 25 years of age and older in:
- Undergraduate programs
- Graduate programs
- Evening or weekend programs
The ASPS captures a variety of experiences at four-year institutions where the nontraditional student experience may be different than the on-campus traditional student experience, both inside and outside of the classroom, including:
- Instructional effectiveness
- Academic advising
- Registration effectiveness
- Campus climate
- Safety and security
- Recruitment and financial aid
Receive national benchmark comparisons
After using the ASPS, you will receive detailed reports about the responses for your population and see how your students’ satisfaction levels compare with comparable students nationally. Review the report samples and the list of institutions in the current three-year national norm groups.
The items on the Adult Student Priorities Survey have been mapped to the criteria for each of the regional accreditors. Learn more and download the documentation.
“We use the findings to shape our strategic direction. Every year in our strategic planning meetings we ask: What are some actionable items we can take to close these gaps?”
“The RNL Adult Student Priorities Survey measures our adult students’ opinions in terms of importance and satisfaction on a number of services, programs, and experiences. This instrument has been critical in Medaille College’s efforts to make data-driven decisions in terms of assessment and increased retention.”
