End of course survey results for the Fall 2012 academic session have
been received and compiled into a comprehensive report, and 98 percent
of Chancellor University students said they would recommend their
program of study at Chancellor to others.
Ninety-four percent of respondents said they would recommend Chancellor
University overall to others, 96 percent found the learning experience
to be both rigorous and challenging, and 97 percent stated that
they were very satisfied or better with their studies at CU. Ninety-six
percent of the students said that the online learning environment
was an effective technique for course delivery.
"These numbers are really high, and provide us with encouragement to
continue to make changes that will help students in the long run," said
Dr. Douglas Clay, Chancellor University Director of Assessment. "The
flexibility and nimble atmosphere at Chancellor allows us to change
along with the needs and concerns of our students, which will continue
to suppor this positive trend going forward."
Added CU Provost, Dr. Steve Kerr, "University President Bob Daugherty
and I couldn't be more pleased at the strides we are making to provide a
valuable and applicable education to our students. The staff and faculty
make every effort to ensure that the programs we offer are presented
with the most viable programs and courses available, with
aggressive outcomes to ensure that our students are not only learning,
but developing a personal sense of accomplishment."
The survey, which is completed at the end of every eight-week session,
is also a valuable tool to assess instructor effectiveness and permit
individualized training to better enhance each teacher's skills while
augmenting their strengths. This initiative is strongly reflected by the
fact that 98% said that their instructors facilitate meaningful
discussions and interaction, with 94% stating that the instructor
responds to emails and phone calls promptly.
"Employing instructors with extensive real-world experiences that
enhance their teaching effectiveness is a crucial part of our mission as
educators," said Dr. Kerr. "I know first-hand that our students benefit
tremendously from the opportunity to learn from people who have actually
done what they are teaching about."
Chancellor University was founded in Cleveland in 1848. It has served
students in Northeast Ohio since then and has served students on-line
since the late 1990s. The school currently enrolls students from 45 of
the 50 U.S. states and several foreign countries. Since 1978, Chancellor
University has been accredited by The Higher Learning Commission of the
North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
