Act on Fact: Using Data to Improve Student Success. 2006 Findings. Executive Summary
Community College Survey of Student Engagement
Each year, the Community College Survey of Student Engagement ("CCSSE") presents the results of its annual survey--and helps colleges use that information to improve student learning and persistence. "CCSSE" results give community colleges objective and relevant data about students' experiences at their colleges so they can better understand how effectively they are engaging their students--and identify areas for improvement. "CCSSE's" survey, "The Community College Student Report," focuses on institutional practices and student behaviors that promote student engagement. Beginning this year, all "CCSSE" data analyses include a three-year cohort of participating colleges. Using a three-year cohort increases the number of institutions and students in the national dataset, optimizes representation of institutions by size and location, and therefore, increases the reliability of the overall results. This year's three-year cohort--called the 2006 "CCSSE" Cohort--includes all colleges that participated in "CCSSE" from 2004 through 2006. If a college participated more than one time in the three-year period, the cohort includes data only from its most recent year of participation. The 2006 "CCSSE" Cohort includes 249,548 students from 447 institutions in 46 states. This paper provides results for the 2006 "CCSSE" Cohort along with a discussion of how colleges might analyze the data. The results are organized by benchmark, but they focus on the specific survey items associated with each benchmark.
