2006 Noel-Levitz Conference

November 24, 2010

Noel-LevitzIn July 2006 I attended the annual Noel-Levitz conference in Denver. The first day was a client workshop on the various N-L surveys of student satisfaction and importance, such as the SSI (Student Satisfaction Inventory) and the PSOL (Priorities Survey for Online Learners). They had just updated the overall results for the PSOL. There are now just over 34,000 student survey submissions from 78 institutions. This is approximately a doubling in the number of records since the 2005 data was released. Here are a few of the demographics of this national group of online learners:

  • Female: 68%, Male: 32%

  • Age Distribution:
    • 24 & under: 19%
    • 25-34 years: 30%
    • 35-44 years: 27%
    • 45 & older: 24%

  • Current Enrollment:

    • primarily online: 82%
    • primarily on-ground: 18%

  • Class load:

    • Full-time 57%
    • Part-time: 43%

  • Employment:

    • full-time: 71%
    • part-time: 16%
    • not employed: 13%

  • Educational goal:
    • Associate degree: 14%
    • Bachelor: 34%
    • Master: 26%
    • Doctorate: 22%

  • Current online enrollment:

    • 1-3 credits: 27%
    • 4-6 credits: 34%
    • 7-9 credits: 16%
    • 10-12 credits: 12%
    • 13 or more credits: 11%

  • Previous online enrollment:

    • no classes: 25%
    • 1-3 classes: 37%
    • 4-6 classes: 15%
    • 7-9 classes: 8%
    • 10 or more: 15%

Those numbers include a little less than 3,000 students from MnOnline who completed the survey during Feb-Mar of 2006.
