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. 2007 was the eighth annual NSSE survey cycle and it was also was a year of a fistful of "firsts": (1) Record number of schools participating in NSSE--610; (2) Record number of schools administering the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE)--162; (3) Inaugural administration of the Beginning College Survey of Student Engagement (BCSSE) with 127 colleges and universities taking part; (4) NSSE results and other information available to participating schools via downloads from a secure Web site; (5) A NSSE-USA TODAY initiative to encourage responsible public reporting of student engagement and other meaningful indicators of collegiate quality; and (6) The launch of the Australasian Survey of Student Engagement under a special license agreement with NSSE. This report presents additional highlights from the 2007 NSSE, FSSE, and BCSSE projects. As is the custom, this report summarizes key findings from the core survey and reports the benchmarks for effective educational practice by institutional type. It also illustrates how different types of colleges and universities are using their NSSE data and summarizes ongoing efforts of the NSSE Institute for Effective Educational Practice. In addition, it features results from experimental questions about advisors and the role of family members. (Contains 9 tables and 14 figures.)
