Based on primary survey data, this paper is an exceptionally fine example of community-based public opinion research. Not surprisingly, this study has received widespread recognition both inside and outside LSC (winning first place at the 2015 CACs conference and receiving widespread praise at the Great Plains regional conference.) After completing the required IRB training and certification, Ariana Rosario selected a sample of over 300 members of Lone Star College that proved to be remarkably representative of the college at large. By administering a structured questionnaire and controlling for a range of critical variables, her research generated some fascinating results. This analysis is a superb example of independent survey research based on rigorous questionnaire design and institutional review board certification.
