First Quarterly Student Survey Report Released

From March through June 2010, NMLS randomly surveyed students who completed NMLS approved courses as part of a multi-phased auditing strategy to ensure courses are being delivered in accordance with NMLS policies.  The survey results showed that overall, education is being delivered in accordance with NMLS policies, however, when pre-licensure education is viewed in each of the three classroom formats (classroom, classroom equivalent (webinar), and online instructor-led), additional attention need to be devoted to the classroom equivalent and online instructor-led formats.  Both of these formats, when compared to traditional classroom, scored lower in interactivity and course rigor.  In response to the student surveys over the past several months NMLS has modified its approval process for online instructor led courses and will be looking at ways to more effectively approve and audit classroom equivalent courses.  A copy of the survey report can be found at:
