National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)
Administered by the Indiana University Center for Postsecondary Research, this survey is designed to measure the degree of student engagement in college activities that correlate to student learning and personal development. This survey includes questions on class participation, academic rigor, amount of effort put into class work and overall experience. Beginning in 2006, the survey will be administered every three years in the spring to eligible first-year students and graduating seniors. A new version of the NSSE, NSSE 2.0, was available starting 2014.
Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE)
Administered by the Indiana University Center for Postsecondary Research, the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement is designed to measure faculty expectations for student engagement in educational practices as well as provide comparative data to be used with the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). Questions address the importance faculty place on various areas of learning and development, the nature and frequency of faculty-student interactions and faculty organization of class time. The FSSE is currently administered at Stanislaus. A new version of the FSSE, FSSE 2.0, was available starting 2014.
