A Survey of Gratitude Awareness of Chinese College Students

A Survey of Gratitude Awareness of Chinese College Students

Keywords College Students, Gratitude Awareness Situation, Survey 1. Introduction Gratitude, as a traditional virtue and an essential requirement, should be a built- in moral trait of college students who are the elite group of a society. However, in re- cent years, the gratitude awareness and actions among college students attracted social attention, and aroused researcher’s reflection. Nowadays, most post-90s col- lege students are the only child in their families, and they “are active, pursue indi- viduality, and adopt a variety of values” (Niu, 2011). This paper, through a ques- tionnaire survey of the students in a university, has probed into this problem: what kind of value would be selected by the post-90s college students.

College Students’ Perceptions of Sustainability: A Regional Survey

College Students’ Perceptions of Sustainability: A Regional Survey

8. Conclusion Understanding college students’ perceptions of sustainability is important because they will shortly become the generation who is responsible for driving the economy and maintaining a sustainable society. The findings of this study support the growing awareness of the importance of sustainable behavior among today’s student body, encourage socially responsible behavior, provide a benchmark against which to measure the impact of future changes to sustainability education and foster sustainable behaviors over time among the public. The study’s findings revealed interesting insights related to a number of sustainability topics and demonstrated how chal- lenging it is to draw concrete conclusions on the subject based on a limited amount of regionally constrained sample data. However, in spite of this we believe that the survey results provide evidence that supports many of the findings of previous studies in this area as well as useful information to help guide future studies on similar subjects.

A Survey Report of Chinese College Students’ Perceptions of the College English Course

A Survey Report of Chinese College Students’ Perceptions of the College English Course

From the EFA, we found that there were six latent factors that received students’ most attention in the response survey. We planned to analyze the top three factors as the most latent factors. The first latent factor (see Table 9.) identified in the factor analysis was comprised of eight items in the MUSIC Model survey. These items represented the college students’ perceptions of usefulness of the course with an alpha coefficient of 0.833. The second strongest factor was comprised of five items indicating the college students’ perceptions of empowerment within the course. The alpha coefficient was 0.738. The third component was from five items in the MUSIC Model, which represented the college students’ perceptions of interest in the English course. It had an alpha coefficient of 0.714. Overall, the factor that obtained the participants’ most attention was the usefulness of the English course. It was closely followed by the factor of empowerment. The third was the factor of interest. Integrated with the results of Question 1, the results from the factor analysis indicated that college students realized the English course was very useful for their life and future. However, they could not perceive a sense of autonomy or control over the coursework. As a result, they did not have a strong interest in the English course. Therefore, the instructors must take actions to redesign their instructional methods in order to motivate students. These results were consistent with the results in Question 1, indicating the urgency of instructional change in the English course.

Survey and Thinking on Entrepreneurship education of Local College Students

Survey and Thinking on Entrepreneurship education of Local College Students

3. 6 Training focus of entrepreneurial education. In the survey, 38.5% of college students chose the cultivation of students' entrepreneurial skills and personality quality, 19.4% the students chose to direct student to specific entrepreneurship practice, 4.6% of students added communication with successful personage of their own accord. Problems show that students tend to practice more, hoping to gain necessary skills in entrepreneurship education, have the opportunity to participate in entrepreneurship practice in personal, and share the experience and lessons with each other during entrepreneurial process. This suggests that schools and teachers should create entrepreneurial environment and atmosphere, form the base and platforms for students to practice themselves, and establish close contact with different social professions. During contacts and exchanges with relevant personage, schools and teachers need to arouse students' enthusiasm, exercise students’ ability in business startup, make the contribution to conveying a batch of entrepreneurial type qualified human talents to the society in the future.

Survey of Canadian Career College Students Phase II: In-School Student Survey

Survey of Canadian Career College Students Phase II: In-School Student Survey

S u rv e y o f C a n a d i a n C a r e e r C o l l e g e S t u d e n t s — P h a s e I I : I n - S c h o o l S t u d e n t S u rv e y 58 Overall, it appears that the private career college system complements the public college system. The private system offers short programs specifically geared towards quick entry into the labour market. Students accessing this system appear to be choosing specific programs that are shorter in dura- tion to obtain marketable labour skills without significant investment in post-secondary education. As noted, private career college students have fewer resources available to finance a post- secondary education. Theses students, therefore, are commonly drawing upon the Canada Student Loans system or other government assistance to fund their private career college education. Private career college students are significantly more likely to utilize a student loan to finance their education than those attending a public college. Despite the increased reliance on student loans, the private career college students eligible to participate in this survey were utilizing EI or other government assistance at the same rate as those in the public system.

Interpersonal Conflict Handling Styles:  A Survey of Chinese College Students

Interpersonal Conflict Handling Styles: A Survey of Chinese College Students

The variable whether only-child has no influence on the choices of college students. In China, people often call the only-child as “Little Emperor” or “Little Sun”. They worry only-child will be more arrogant and willful than non-only-child, weaker in dealing with interpersonal relationship. But the reality has proved that this worry is not necessary. During the interview, the author even found that, in conflict, the only-child more often than non-only-child performance rational, magnanimous, and mature. Meanwhile, the survey discovered that the difference between rural and urban areas is extremely small. So can we conclude that along with China's reform and opening up, the urban-rural gap has been

Development and Validation of a B. E. A. N. Survey for College Students

Development and Validation of a B. E. A. N. Survey for College Students

Abstract: Background: College students often do not consume the recommended amounts of beans and legumes. To develop interventions aimed at improving the intake of beans and legumes in the college population, more information is needed on the behaviors, environment, attitudes, and nutrition knowledge (B. E. A. N.) of college students regarding beans. Validated tools to assess these bean-related constructs are currently lacking. Objectives: The objectives of this study are to 1). Gather preliminary qualitative information about bean-related constructs (Phase I); and 2). Create a valid and reliable survey tool to measure the B. E. A. N. constructs with a larger sample of college students (Phase II). Methods: Phase I included cognitive interviews with university students (n = 30) to collect baseline data on the B. E. A. N. constructs. Phase II involved survey development and content validation with 5 content experts and face validation with 5 undergraduate students. A convenience sample of undergraduate students was surveyed to test internal structure and consistency (n = 355), establish convergent and discriminant evidence (n = 351), and measure test-retest reliability (n = 242) of the developed tool. Results: Development and revisions in Phase I and content and face validation resulted in a 13-question survey consisting of four primary constructs of behavior (4 items), environment (2 items), attitudes (5 items), and nutrition knowledge (2 items). In Phase II, factor analysis resulted in one factor of “bean consumption” being created from combining attitude and behavior questions, with factor loadings from .77 to .94. However, two environment and two knowledge questions were retained due to perceived relevancy. The internal consistency was α = 0.97 for the “bean consumption” construct (8 items) and α = 0.96 for the entire survey (12 items). The knowledge construct was validated by those that had taken an introductory nutrition course having significantly higher mean knowledge scores than those that had not taken an introductory nutrition course (p < 0.001; 3.05 ±.89 vs. 2.30 ± 1.62, respectively). The test-retest results ranged from r =.480 to .825 with all correlations being statistically significant (p < 0.01). The average total score for the pilot testing was 33.7 (± 27) out of a possible 100 points. Conclusion: This validated survey may be used in future research to examine the B. E. A. N. of college students regarding beans. This knowledge may be valuable in developing future effective health promotion interventions with college students.

2013 Texas Survey of Substance Use Among College Students

2013 Texas Survey of Substance Use Among College Students

8 Conclusion The 2013 survey shows some promising trends in drug and alcohol use amongst Texas college students. Alcohol and tobacco use have both declined. Drunk driving appears to have declined as well. It is not clear, however, if colleges have themselves played a role in this change. Students continue to have poor awareness of campus programs designed to inform students about drug and alcohol abuse and to help students who believe they are suffering from a substance abuse problem. The large number of students who choose to quit or cut back on their use of alcohol and drugs demonstrates that student behavior is in flux and campus programs could be valuable contributors to accomplishing important policy goals like reducing the incidence of drunk driving. In addition to suggesting that awareness of these programs needs to be increased, this survey provides useful data regarding how students might be convinced to reduce or cease their consumption of alcohol and illicit drugs.

HIGHLIGHTS. Demographic Survey of American Jewish College Students 2014

HIGHLIGHTS. Demographic Survey of American Jewish College Students 2014

Low cooperation or response rates to surveys in general is a contemporary problem as reflected in the Pew Research Center’s 2013 telephone survey of U.S. Jews. Despite the geographic stratification of households in residential areas of high Jewish density, Pew achieved a 16% response rate with seven call-backs. The Trinity College on-line student surveys achieved 10- 12% response rates with only one reminder. Students responded to an invitation by e-mail to participate in the survey. The sampling frame was taken from open-access databases of college students. Students were offered an incentive for their participation, a chance to win a gift certificate.

A SURVEY REPORT ON MENTAL HEALTH. College Students Speak: A Survey Report on Mental Health

A SURVEY REPORT ON MENTAL HEALTH. College Students Speak: A Survey Report on Mental Health

“I think colleges should pay attention to the fact that many more students need mental health services than who actually access them. Some of the students most affected or most at risk for mental health conditions are the hardest to reach because they are secluded in their rooms.” - Survey Respondent The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) conducted a national survey of college students living with mental health conditions to learn about their experiences in school. NAMI designed the survey to hear directly from students about whether schools are meeting their needs and what improvements are needed to support their academic experience.

Analysis of College Students’ Personal Health Information Activities: Online Survey

Analysis of College Students’ Personal Health Information Activities: Online Survey

Objective: This study aimed to investigate demographic and academic profiles of college students with relevance to PHIM activities. Next, we sought to construct major PHIM-related activity components and perceptions among college students. Finally, we sought to discover major factors predicting core PHIM activities among college students we sampled. Methods: A Web survey was administered to collect responses about PHIM behaviors and perceptions among college students from the University of Kentucky from January through March 2017. A total of 1408 college students were included in the analysis. PHIM perceptions, demographics, and academic variations were used as independent variables to predict diverse PHIM activities using a principal component analysis (PCA) and hierarchical regression analyses (SPSS v.24, IBM Corp, Armonk, NY, USA). Results: Majority of the participants were female (956/1408, 67.90%), and the age distribution of this population included an adequate representation of college students of all ages. The most preferred health information resources were family (612/1408, 43.47%), health care professionals (366/1408, 26.00%), friends (27/1408, 1.91%), and the internet (157/1408, 11.15%). Organizational or curatorial activities such as Arranging, Labeling, Categorizing, and Discarding were rated low (average=3.21, average=3.02, average=2.52, and average=2.42, respectively). The PCA results suggested 3 components from perception factors labeled as follows: Assistance (alpha=.85), Awareness (alpha=.716), and Difficulty (alpha=.558). Overall, the Demographics and Academics variables were not significant in predicting dependent variables such as Labeling, Categorizing, Health Education Materials, and Discarding, whereas they were significant for other outcome variables such as Sharing, Collecting, Knowing, Insurance Information, Using, and Owning.

Survey of Opinion of Marginalized College Students About Online University Education

Survey of Opinion of Marginalized College Students About Online University Education

ABSTRACT In Nigeria, tertiary education is obtainable from the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education and preference by majority is in that order. Meanwhile, the high demand today for tertiary education renders thousands of eligible and qualified college students unadmitted and marginalized because of a limitation of space. Most students that opt for a University education end up being offered Polytechnic and College of Education admission contrary to their desire. A major alternative to this is an online University education. The purpose of this study was to determine the extent of awareness of Nigerian College students about online tertiary education and the practicability of the same in Nigeria.

Credit cards and student interest: a financial literacy survey of college students

Credit cards and student interest: a financial literacy survey of college students

Three previous surveys of financial literacy were used to develop our hypotheses. The first survey (Chen & Volpe, 1998) is comprised of 924 students from 13 different campuses. The reported results indicate the following groups scored better than their counterparts: males, students with a higher class rank, and business majors. Investments were the weakest area for the 1998 survey participants. The gender differences found in this survey were further explored in 2002 (Chen & Volpe, 2002). Race was examined closely in the second survey (Murphy, 2005) of 277 students from a predominantly Black institution. Murphy (2005) found gender and age differences in scores, but did not find the differences to be significant. Along with race; major and parental education were found to be significant. In 2008 Jumpstart administered its financial literacy quiz to college students for the first time. The sample was made up of 1,030 full time college students between the ages of 18-23. Higher mean scores were achieved by students with higher parental income, parental education, students who had credit cards, females and students who had taken related college or high school courses (Mandell, 2008).

College Students’ Dual-Screening, Political Habits, and Attitudes: A Survey Analysis

College Students’ Dual-Screening, Political Habits, and Attitudes: A Survey Analysis

Even though that study looked into college students it did not have any inquiries into the political practices of dual screeners. McGregor and Mourao (2017) created a cross-lagged autoregressive panel survey design and discovered that there is a positive association to dual screening and political participation. However, they also discovered that people, who were not in favor of Trump, dual-screening during news leads lead to a decrease in political participation: online and offline. Based on original survey data collected in twenty societies, Gil de Zuniga and Liu (2017) have found that young people tend to second screen more than their older peers. Furthermore, heavy users of dual- screening politically express themselves more on social media and tend to be more

The Use and Abuse of Cell Phones and Text Messaging in the Classroom: A Survey of College Students

The Use and Abuse of Cell Phones and Text Messaging in the Classroom: A Survey of College Students

information and nine did not answer the question about receiving it. text messaging to cheat on an exam, 35% of students in the Common Sense Media poll indicated that they had cheated using a cell phone. Not all of the cheating reported in the Common Sense Media poll was attributed to text messaging, but 25% still reported cheating using text messaging. Other instances of cheating included accessing stored information using a phone or searching the Internet for answers. These methods were not directly assessed in the present study. It appears that although college students are more likely to have possession of their phones in class than are high school stu- dents, they are less likely to use them to cheat on an exam. It is not clear whether this difference is due to a decrease in cheating from high school to college, whether the students who cheat in high school are less likely to go to college, or whether the college students are just less likely to report the cheating that occurs. Clearly more research is needed in this field. In order to more adequately represent all college populations, follow-up studies should survey students from other types of institutions, such as community college or large university settings.

2005 Texas Survey of Substance Use Among College Students. Main Findings Report

2005 Texas Survey of Substance Use Among College Students. Main Findings Report

Methodology The current survey is a follow-up to a 1997 survey of college students (Kerber and Wallisch, 1999). However, substantial changes were made to the study design and the mode of administration previously developed in 1997. With these modifications, comparisons between the 2005 survey and the previous survey are limited. The sampling frame in 2005 was broadened to include undergraduate students aged 18 to 26 at all public and private universities, colleges, and community colleges across the state. With the addition of community colleges and small institutions, sampling bias toward large four-year institutions was significantly reduced. In contrast to 1997’s simple random sample, a multi- stage cluster design was used in the 2005 study. New measures related to mental health, use of internet for drug information and acquisition, and recreational use of prescription drugs were added to the survey instrument (Dyer et al., 2005). A mixed mode approach in survey administration was used to collect data via telephone interviews and email solicitation to the online survey forms.
