the spring 2009 semester. The manufacturer of the university's student system was Datatel, and
the database used was Oracle.
As stated in Chapter 3, nine questions related to pre-college expectations and early
college experience were utilized to obtain a more quantitative understanding of the role
disparities in these factors play a part in early attrition. Data from Part I of the FES were used to
address three questions pertaining to expectations of academic progress, involvement on campus
and relationships with others. FES Part II data were used to address three related questions
regarding early experiences of academic progress, involvement on campus, and relationships
with others. Correlations between FES Part I and FES Part II addressed three questions that
examined the congruence between the expectations and actual experiences of academic progress,
involvement on campus and relationships with others.
A summary of the survey responses to each item relevant to this study is provided below.
For easier understanding, the response data were divided into three sections, i.e., expectations
(FES Part I), early experiences (FES Part II), and correlations relating to attrition. The number
of responses reported in the tables varied due to some items having multiple responses for each
participant and/or omitted data occurring on individual surveys.
Expectations - Freshman Experience Survey (FES) Part I
As noted previously, Part I of the FES was distributed in the summer of 2008 at new
student orientation prior to the students' first semester at the institute identified by the study. As
a part of the orientation program, all students were asked to complete the survey prior to
registering for fall classes. A high level of participation was achieved due to the timing of the
survey, obtaining strong participation by Hispanic, Black, and White students as shown in Table
