Remote Learning Check-In

Spring 2020 Remote Learning Check-In Survey

On April 9th, 2020, the Office of Academic Planning and Assessment (OAPA) launched a Remote Learning Check-In Survey to gather feedback from undergraduates about their experiences with the abrupt transition to remote instruction necessitated by the COVID-19 crisis. OAPA researchers developed the survey in-house after soliciting input from Academic Affairs and Student Affairs and Campus Life, and reviewing surveys conducted by other institutions and organizations.

All undergraduate students not poised to graduate in spring 2020 (n=16,548) were invited to complete the online, confidential survey and 5,922 (36%) participated. As illustrated in the Appendix, demographic characteristics of survey participants closely match those of the target population with regard to credits taken, College/School, and first-generation status. However, women are considerably overrepresented among survey participants (by 12 percentage points), and White students and honors students are slightly overrepresented (by 4 and 5 percentage points, respectively).
