Generative AI (GenAI) Student Survey


During the 2024 Winter Quarter, the Center for Educational Effectiveness surveyed all undergraduate students (N= ~31,000) about their perceptions, uses, and future value of Generative AI (GenAI). Approximately 4% (N=1361) responded. No identifiable information was collected, and all respondents were advised that their responses would be completely anonymous. 

Key takeaways include the majority of students:

  • deeply consider the ethics of using GenAI for academic work
  • do not use GenAI frequently
  • are cautious in trusting the accuracy of GenAI
  • and believe GenAI is important to work after college
