Parental Influence on Students’ Major
Data obtained from UCUES 2006
Second Choice Major
1)On slide #8: you show UCUES data related to choice of major. First of all, you should make it clear that only UPPER DIVISION students were asked these questions, and you should show the number of respondents in each group. (For example, it should be clear that there were only 17 OSE respondents.)
2) On slide #8 and slide #12: freshmen did not answer those questions – they were only asked of upper division students. I think you must have misunderstood the variable that indicates whether a student was a freshman entrant or a transfer student. You should redo that bar to include ALL engineering students who responded.
3)On slide #6: you mention survey monkey, but I don’t see where that data is used in the presentation. Perhaps I overlooked it?
4)On slide #9: QuickSurvey results look correct, but you should show the number of respondents as well as the percentage.
5)On slide #19: you state the students are unsatisfied with internship options. How do you know? Do you have data to support that? If so, you should show it.
