Adult Student Priorities Survey™

Assess adult students in graduate or continuing education programs
Adult Student Priorities Survey

By using the Adult Student Priorities Survey, you'll see what's important to your adult students and how satisfied they are, along with national benchmark comparison data. You can also administer it to meet accreditation requirements (items are mapped to the HLC and SACS criteria).

Survey adult learners 25 years of age and older in:

  • Evening programs
  • Weekend programs
  • Continuing education
  • Credit and non-credit courses
  • Graduate programs
  • Undergraduate programs

See a sample of the online version of the survey and a sample of the paper version. Also, see samples of the resulting reports at right.

The survey encompasses the full range of adult student experiences. It can be used on its own or in combination with any survey in the Noel-Levitz family of satisfaction/priorities surveys.
