The University of California Undergraduate Experience Survey (UCUES) solicits student opinions on a broad range of undergraduate students' academic and co-curricular experiences, including instruction, advising and student services.
The survey provides information about student behaviors including time use and academic engagement and community involvement. It documents students' self-perceptions and goals, political beliefs and affiliation, and perceptions of the role of the research university. It also collects background demographic information, such as students' self-reported language background, family immigration experience and social class.
Data from the UCUES survey have been used in institutional and administrative research, as well as various instructional and scholarly research. They have been well integrated into policy discussions and learning outcomes assessment at the University of California to guide the University on improving the undergraduate experience.
