We finished our REVIVE course less than a week ago, and we've already begun analyzing the results of our exit survey. Below are a few insights gleaned from our preliminary results.
REVIVE Exit SurveyBy Dan Vis
January 21, 2017
The survey size was a bit smaller than anticipated. Still, out of nearly 1200 participants, almost 200 people completed our survey. That's a large enough size to get some feel of how class members felt about the course. Here's our questions and answers:
Do you feel this course helped you better understand revival?
A full 98% gave this a yes answer. It's not clear whether the 3 people who said no already understood revival well, or simply didn't find our content helpful. But we are happy with such a high positive score!
About how many lessons were you able to complete?
Good results here as well--almost 90% reported completing all 10 studies! That's an exceptionally high completion rate for online courses. And the percentage may actually be higher, as our classroom is still open to give remaining class members a chance to finish up. Regardless, it seems the format we are using now is working well for most class participants.
Which lessons (topics) did you find most helpful?
The answers to this questions ranged over the entire set. I hope to chart this more accurately but my initial assessment was that each of the lessons seemed to be enjoyed by different people in roughly equal measure.
Which lessons (topics) did you find least helpful?
Here the answers were almost all the same. At least 95% of the respondents felt every lesson was good, and there was no lesson they felt should be left out.
How motivated are you to continue the pursuit of revival?
On a scale of 1 (low) to 5 (high), 95% gave this a score of 4 or 5. Of those 83% gave it a 5. Our graduates clearly came out with a strong desire to continue seeking more of God's Spirit in their life.
How would you rate each of the following?
Here are most common answers for each area, based on a similar scale of 1 to 5. In every area, at least 90% gave us one of the top two scores. The problem some people had posting comments seems to have been a factor in a slightly lower score for the classroom environment.
|Class Content: 77% gave a 5, 21% gave a 4.
Coaching Support: 78% gave a 5, 19% gave a 4.
Student Interactions: 59% gave a 5, 33% gave a 4.
Classroom Environment: 64% gave a 5, 26% gave a 4.
In each area, more than 90% gave us a favorable score. Praise God!
Would you recommend this course to a friend?
All but 1 person said yes, giving us a score of more than 99%. Praise God...
Would you enjoy taking additional courses like this in the future?
The same exact score. One person said no, the other 99 % all said yes. That' encouraging too!
What is your overall rating of this course?
On a scale of 1 to 5 stars, we received a score of 4.8.
Which topics most interest you for future intensives:
Interestingly, the results of this survey varied significantly from our exit survey from the Breakout Memory Challenge where we asked a similar question. It could be this series tweaked interest in certain topics, or it was simply a different group of people. Hard to say. It is also interesting that there was some variation between those who responded first and those responded later. But here are the most recent results:
56% Biblical Meditation
54% Giving Bible Studies
52% Time Management
51% Spiritual Gifts
44% Spiritual Fasting
42% Launching a Ministry
34% Care Groups
33% The Moral Machinery
24% The Ten Commandments
There was also a question asking for feedback on how we could improve this course, with several great suggestions in the answers. We will be studying all of these suggestions carefully for future courses!
Thanks so much to each person who participated in REVIVE :: 2017, and especially to those who completed our exit survey.
