Exploring Different Dimensions of Student Engagement. 2005 Annual Survey Results
National Survey of Student Engagement
The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) documents dimensions of quality in undergraduate education and provides information and assistance to colleges, universities, and other organizations to improve student learning. Its primary activity is annually surveying college students to assess the extent to which they engage in educational practices associated with high levels of learning and development. This is the sixth NSSE report exploring the relationships between effective educational practice and selected aspects of student success in college. The data come from more than 190,000 first-year and senior students randomly sampled from 530+ institutions. In addition to summarizing activities measured by the core survey, it also reports results from experimental items added to the on-line version related to concurrent multiple institution enrollment, students' expectations for college matched with their first-year experiences, spirituality practices, and participation in athletics as well as some other educationally purposeful activities. Finally, as with previous reports, it offers examples of how a variety of institutions are putting their NSSE data to use and summarizes ongoing and new efforts undertaken by the NSSE Institute. (Contains 9 tables and 7 figures.)
