Abstract

Every student who has studied at the University of Florence is supposed to fill in a questionnaire prepared by the interuniversity consortium "Almalaurea". This survey concerns the general quality of the college and makes it possible to express the level of satisfaction about many aspects of the University experience. In this paper we wish to evaluate the relationship between observed variables and latent variables of interest: The structural equation models (SEM) is the methodology which suits best our needs. By means of a SEM we aim at building a model that reproduces the determinants of students’ satisfaction. Like any other statistical tool, the SEM is not suitable for causal analysis. However, under certain assumptions, it turns out that the model employed is an adequate representation of the reality under study.
