National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)

This national survey project focuses on the quality of undergraduate learning and assesses the extent to which students engage in educational practices that have shown to be associated with high levels of learning and development. NSSE is administered to first-year students and seniors in February and March. CWRU participated in NSSE annually from 2001 through 2007 and again in 2009 and 2012. Results provide a longitudinal database for evaluating many aspects of the undergraduate experience.

The research linked below utilizes data from the National Survey of Student Engagement and examines the relationship between open-minded (reflective) learning, student satisfaction, and learning outcomes. This poster was initially presented at the 2009 Research ShowCASE.

Keeping an Open Mind: Self-Examination and the College Experience (PowerPoint)

The Beginning College Survey of Student Engagement (BCSSE) is designed as a companion piece to the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). As such, responses on the two instruments can be compared, thus providing information about the transition from high school to college. These reports examine the BCSSE and NSSE instruments together:
