Welcome to the ECST Self-Efficacy Survey

Dear ECST Student:

The College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology (ECST) wants to help more students complete ECST degrees. To advance this goal, we are implementing new approaches to support student success both inside and outside of the classroom.

It is important for us to know how effective these new interventions are for you and your peers. One measurement we use is to document changes in ECST self-efficacy - that means how confident you are that you have the capacity and are able to access the resources necessary to achieve your academic and career goals.

This survey was designed to help measure the self-efficacy of our students as they enter and progress through ECST. The first year's survey will provide a baseline. We will ask you to take the survey again in a year to see if your self-efficacy has increased. We are particularly interested in learning if students who participate in our support services and programs are more likely to enjoy gains in self-efficacy.

Thank you in advance for completing this survey. It requires about 10 minutes of your time. Please know that we will use the survey results to learn how we can best support you and other students.

Participation in this survey is completely voluntary and will have no impact on your grades. You can choose to not participate. You can also withdraw at any time.

You will see as you take the survey that we require responses to many of the questions.  If you do not want to respond to a question with a required response, you can choose to close the survey and withdraw your participation. 

The survey responses are confidential and no personally identifiable information will be included in research reports presenting survey findings.

Thank you again for your time and perspective,

Dr. Emily Allen
College of ECST
