CSULB Freshmen Assessment Findings

CSULB is a member of the Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) at UCLA (please visit http://www.gseis.ucla.edu/heri/cirp.html for details about the program). Our membership in this research program enables us to administer a nationwide survey instrument to CSULB students just beginning their college careers as freshmen or transfer students. The instrument includes a wide array of items pertaining to cognitive and affective entering student characteristics. By collecting this baseline of information about our students, we are able to study how they change by attending CSULB. In 2004, more than 289,000 students at 440 different colleges and universities across the nation completed the questionnaire, enabling participating members to compare their students to others at comparable institutions.

At CSULB, the questionnaire of entering student characteristics is administered through the University 100 program for freshmen, and through the SOAR program for transfer students. Response rates typically include 80-85% of entering freshmen, and 60-65% of entering transfer students. In October of each year, completed questionnaires are sent to the UCLA processing center in Minnesota. UCLA then sets up datafiles for participating institutions, and sends an institutional database to members in December. In February of the following year, CIRP members receive nationally normed data.

At CSULB, we have collected and analyzed entering student data through the CIRP from 1997 to the present. Frequency tables of findings from the year 2003 to the present can be viewed by clicking on the links below. Feel free to browse through the findings and request additional reports. If you are a faculty or staff member at CSULB, you may request access to any of the original SPSS databases where raw data are stored.
