Methodology

UCUES 2010 was administered to all UC Berkeley undergraduate students enrolled in spring semester 2010, excluding students under 18 years of age. From this population of 24,967 enrolled undergraduates, 12,499 (50%) responded to at least one of the items in the first block of questions and 11,203 (45% of those invited) made it through to the end of the survey and submitted it. Each student was randomly assigned to one of five topical modules (Academic Experience; Civic Engagement; Student Development; Wild Card – a special topics module on Connection with Cal and Advising) in addition to the core UCUES items.

This year's survey has three parts:

Part 1: Time use, academic and personal development, academic engagement, overall satisfaction, and evaluation of the educational experience

Part 2: Background information

Part 3: A randomly assigned module emphasizing academic experience, civic engagement, personal development, or items of special interest to the campus
