Planning & Analysis Highlights
Spring 2020 UCUES results are now available via an interactive dashboard that allows for filtering by several student characteristics: entry status as a freshman or transfer, student level, first generation college status, Pell recipient status, socioeconomic status, race/ethnicity, gender, and residency status. You can find a sub-set of UCUES results by academic unit in the 2020 UCUES Departmental Report. You can also view a curated set of UCUES results in the Student Experience dashboard on the Our Berkeley data digest site.
For general information about this survey, please see the UCUES page on our website.
The Fall 2020 Survey of New Students results from freshmen, transfer, Fall Program for Freshmen (FPF) students are now available. Administered at the beginning of the Fall semester, SONS collects information on previous academic experiences, interests and first impressions of Berkeley. This year's SONS also collected information on new students' experiences with COVID-19 and remote learning.
Working with the VC-Equity & Inclusion's office, we have implemented a change in how the Pacific Islander ethnicity category rolls up in Cal Answers student reporting. Rather than appearing under the "Asian/Pacific Islander" level 1 ethnicity category, the group will now be under "Underrepresented Minority." In addition, the level 1 category of "Asian/Pacific Islander" will change to "Asian". To ensure that trend reporting continues to work correctly, this change will apply to all historical data for both undergraduate and graduate students in Cal Answers. Note that no level 2 or level 3 ethnicity reporting categories will change; this only affects these two level 1 categories.
