Surveys

Oct. 1, 2015 -- Inside Higher Ed's 2015 Survey of College and University Admissions Directors examined the views of enrollment officials on topics such as meddling from higher-ups, the pressure to build a class, affirmative action, debt, out-of-state recruiting, viewing applicants' disciplinary records and more.

Like Inside Higher Ed's other surveys, this study was conducted in conjunction with researchers from Gallup.

Inside Higher Ed regularly surveys key higher ed professionals on a range of topics.

On Thursday, Oct. 15, Inside Higher Ed presented a free webinar to discuss the results of the survey. A copy of the webinar can be viewed here. 

The Inside Higher Ed survey of admissions directors was made possible in part by advertising from ELS Educational Services, Hobsons, Jenzabar and Liaison International.

The Educational Testing Service is canceling all scores on the Graduate Record Examination from China this month because large portions of the test had been used in previous administrations of the exam.

While testing companies periodically have to cancel scores when a testing center makes an error or gives an incorrect version of a test, making an error throughout China has major ramifications. About 24,000 test takers -- most of them likely applicants to graduate schools in the United States -- took the GRE this month in China.
