University of Canberra/Student satisfaction

University student satisfaction
at the University of Canberra:
A class-exercise survey

This 2010 university student satisfaction data was systematically sampled from 300 University of Canberra students, as a class exercise for Survey research and design in psychology. For more information about the methodology and some other results, including a graph of the means shown below, please see (2010-2011) and Survey research and design in psychology/Assessment/Project (2012-2013).

The data is based on a convenience sample of 300 students who were systematically sampled from the campus concourse area in Weeks 1 to 4, Sem 1, 2010. Links to data for 2011-2013 are at the end.

Some limitations of this data include:

  • Representativeness
    • e.g., part-time students were less likely to be on campus and therefore were less likely to be sampled
    • Approx. 20% of the sample consists of students enrolled in a third year research methods in psychology unit
