August 2005 Marching Card Results

Total number of undergraduate respondents = 366 (87% response rate)

The back side of the "marching card" from which the faculty Reader reads each student's name at Commencement contained assessment questions. Graduating students were personally asked to respond to these questions while they waited in the Fitness Center gym prior to the processional. The cards were collected when students handed them to the Reader.


1. Overall, SIUE students give higher end-of-semester evaluations to professors who grade easier.
