Abstract


The sense of equity reflects how fair a domain is as evaluated by those engaging in that domain. It is very meaningful to explore the sense of equity among college students, which are a special group of people. This study carried out a questionnaire survey on the sense of equity among 982 college students in China, from the perspectives of educational equity and social equity. The questions were validated by the 27/73 quantile method, and the survey results were analyzed through one-way analysis of variance (one-way ANOVA). The results showed that the college students could evaluate the sense of equity rather accurately and generally had a higher sense of equity, but failed to sense the social outcome equity well; their sense of social equity was lower than the sense of educational equity; the sense of equity varied between college students in different majors: the science majors had a lower sense of equity than those majoring in liberal arts; some college students had a misunderstanding of equity.
