Students Give Martin University Courses and Instructors High Marks

Posted by

Martin University strives to provide strong academic programs with quality instructors, and students say that the University is making positive strides in doing so. According to a survey administered late in the Spring 2014 semester, students reported high levels of satisfaction with many of the University’s academic components. Among these included above average ratings for the quality of courses, course content being applicable to career goals, and the University’s commitment to academic excellence.  Course instructors also received above average ratings in many areas, including level of knowledge in their field, fairness, providing timely feedback about student progress, and availability to meet outside of class.

In addition to above average student ratings for courses and instructors, improvements in many areas of University service were seen when comparing this year’s results to last year’s Spring 2013 results. Financial aid services saw the greatest ratings increase from Spring 2013 to Spring 2014. More students agreed that financial aid counselors return messages in a timely manner, that financial aid counselors are knowledgeable, that correct financial aid information is made available, that financial aid counselors are courteous, and that adequate financial aid is available. Other areas that saw higher positive student ratings from Spring 2013 to Spring 2014 included the University’s billing policies, response to student concerns, career exploration services, and academic advising.
