Methodology

UCUES 2006 was administered to the population of all undergraduate students enrolled at all nine UC undergraduate campuses in spring 2006. At Berkeley, this population consisted of 22,430 students, of which 10,717 (47.8%) responded. Limited enrollment/2nd degree students and students under 18 years of age were excluded from the population.

Students were randomly assigned to complete one of five modules in addition to the core UCUES items.

Note: Some items in the core were presented to selected subgroups. LD indicates only lower division students, UD indicates only upper division students only, AEUD indicates only upper division students assigned to Academic Engagement module.
