The National Survey of Student Engagement: A University-Level Analysis
Lutz, Megan E.; Culver, Steven
Tertiary Education and Management, v16 n1 p35-44 Mar 2010
The National Survey of Student Engagement has been administered to freshmen and seniors at colleges and universities across the USA and Canada, since the spring of 2000, to gather information about the nature and the quality of their education. After each administration, participating schools are provided with an institutional report, including results for five benchmarks of effective educational practice. The purpose of this study was to examine the utility of these benchmark scores at a particular university. The results of a confirmatory factor analysis suggest that the benchmarks are not valid indicators of students' perceptions at this school. Discussion regarding uses of national data collections for individual institutions is provided. (Contains 1 table.)
