Abstract

Responses to the College Student Experiences Questionnaire from 51,155 undergraduates at 128 institutions were analyzed to develop a student typology based upon their patterns of engagement in educationally purposeful activities and the progress they reported making toward important outcomes of college. The Intellectual, Individualist, Scientist, Conventional, and Collegiate groups were above average in terms of gains and the Disengaged, Grind, Recreator, Socializer and Artist were below average.
