High Expectations, High Support: Essential Elements of Engagement. 2008 Findings. Executive Summary
Community College Survey of Student Engagement
This paper presents the findings of the 2008 Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE). This year, CCSSE zeroes in on high expectations and high support as it presents the results of its 2008 survey. Both are critical to student success: Students do best when expectations are high "and" they receive support that helps them achieve at high levels. Lower the standard, and quality suffers. Eliminate the support, and students flounder. But colleges that demonstrate both high expectations and high support give their students essential tools to succeed. Three of the five CCSSE benchmarks--student effort, academic challenge, and support for learners--can help colleges assess whether they are setting high expectations and providing high support. Therefore, this report of the 2008 findings focuses on these three benchmarks. [For the full report, "High Expectations, High Support: Essential Elements of Engagement. 2008 Findings," see ED526359.]
