METHODOLOGY

UCUES 2014 was administered to all UC Berkeley undergraduate students enrolled in spring semester 2014, excluding students under 18 years of age. From this population of 25,402 enrolled undergraduates, 9,784 (39%) responded to at least one of the items in the first block of questions and 8,019 (32% of those invited) made it through to the end of the survey and submitted it. In addition to the core UCUES items, each student was randomly assigned to one of two topical modules. Those modules were the Academic Experience & Student Engagement module, and the Wild Card module. The Wild Card is a special topics module unique to the Berkeley campus and focused on academic and co-curricular advising in 2014.

This year's survey has four parts:

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

Part 2:  Background information and student finances

Part 3:  Academic experience and student development

Part 4:  Advising and student support services experiences
