CU-Boulder compared with other AAU institutions
Overall, CU-Boulder students provided ratings at or very near the AAU mean on 14 summary scales1 assessing student experience, perceptions, and satisfaction. This is the case for both freshman and senior students. There are a few exceptions to this general pattern. CU-Boulder freshmen and seniors provided ratings noticeably below the AAU mean on the measure of satisfaction with upper- and lower-division class size. CU-Boulder seniors also provided ratings noticeably below the AAU mean on the measure of perceptions about the quality and availability of academic advising. CU-Boulder seniors have the second-lowest mean scores (among 16 schools) on all four component items of the academic advising scale. CU-Boulder seniors provided ratings somewhat above the AAU mean on the measure of practical academics (such as engaging in in-class group projects and in community-based projects). Finally, relatively large percentages of CU-Boulder freshmen plan to study abroad, compared with peers at other AAU institutions.1Note that clicking on a particular scale within the graph of the 14 multiple-item scales will display results for items within that scale. A guide to interpreting the graphs is also provided.
