The survey, conducted by the University of Tampere for its second-year students in 2009, examines tutoring, progress with studies, and planning of studies.
Studies were first charted by asking the respondents to what extent they agreed with a number of statements relating to studies and study progress (e.g. "University studies have met my expectations", "I have progressed in my studies according to my plans"). Regarding tutoring and guidance, satisfaction with student tutoring and guidance provided by the department were surveyed.
Planning of studies was examined with questions about the usefulness of the personal study plan (HOPS), support received from the university when planning studies, and own initiative in searching for information supporting planning. Things that had negatively affected progress of studies were charted. Relating to employment, the respondents were asked whether they had worked during the academic year and in which periods, and which line of work they aimed at after their graduation and later in their career.
Finally, the respondents were asked whether they studied full-time or part-time, which educational institution and field of study they had primarily wanted to be accepted into when they had applied, and whether they planned to go on student exchange.
Background variables included the respondent's age, gender, education prior to university studies, field of study, school, and number of credits.
