Notes:

a Means weighted by gender, enrollment status, and institutional size, then scaled (Mean of Top 10% = 100).

b * p<.05, **p<.01, *** p<.001 (2-tailed).

Effect size is Cohen’s d, the standardized difference between the institution’s mean and the comparison group’s mean, calculated by dividing the mean difference by the pooled standard deviation.

AU scores are based on responses of 826 freshmen and 1,056 seniors (21% and 23% response rate), with a sampling error of 3.0% for freshmen and 2.7% for seniors.
