University Analytics & Planning administers and disseminates the results of institutional-level surveys.
National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)
The National Survey for Student Engagement (NSSE) is the best known national project for measuring students engagement. The survey, administered by the Indiana Center for Postsecondary Research, measures the extent to which first-year students and seniors engage in practices understood to be effectively linked with learning outcomes, personal development, student satisfaction, and graduation. Students actively involved in both academic and out-of-class activities have been found to gain more from the college experience than those who are not involved. UND participates in NSSE every two years.
Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE)
The Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) was constructed to parallel the National Survey of Student Engagement-The College Student Report (NSSE). The faculty version focuses on: Faculty perceptions of how often their students engage in different activities, the importance faculty place on various areas of learning and development, the types of interactions faculty have with students, and how faculty members organize class time. The pilot test of the FSSE was administered electronically as a web-only survey in spring 2003.
