2013-14 Survey Summaries

Survey Summaries

The summaries below include the error margin and confidence level for each survey. When surveying students, a random sample was selected. A random sample is selected so that we can get an estimation of what all students think without causing survey fatigue with so many surveys. Since we are using a sample, there is an error margin. This means that if one statistic says "36% of students say...." and there is a 5% error margin that we can guesstimate that between 31%-41% of students believe this. The error margin essentially provides a range within which the actual percentage will fall. The confidence level tells us how confident we can be with the results and this sample error. Within WSU Student Affairs Assessment and Research, we aim for a 95% confidence level.
