Summary

The purpose of this project was to seek out systematically students' perceived needs, attitudes, and interests concerning an array of presently-available and possible new educational experience in order to guide individual faculty and their departments toward the use of instructional formats most likely to win student acceptance. A survey was distributed to 2,000 students and 13% were returned. In addition to information about experience, attitudes, and preferences concerning each major instructional method, students indicated which faculty they regarded as best at each method. Faculty nominated most often were then consulted about their approach. The results of the survey are reported in summaries of student characteristics and student and faculty opinions. Conclusions were: (1) the sample was not representative, (2) generally, student attitudes were not related to experience with the instructional method, (3) popular methods were internships, experiential learning, and student initiated courses, (4) student and faculty comments were similar, (5) student attitudes to consequences of dishonest behavior were lenient, and (6) no "best" method suited all student needs.
