NSSE and the Concept of
Student Engagement
What is Student Engagement?
 What students do -- time and energy devoted to
studies and other educationally purposeful
activities
 What institutions do -- using resources and
effective educational practices to induce students
to do the right things
 Educationally effective institutions channel student
energy toward the right activities

Other Supporting Literature
After reviewing approximately 2,500 studies on
college students from the 1990s, in addition to the
more than 2,600 studies from 1970 to 1990,
Ernest Pascarella and Patrick Terenzini concluded
student engagement is a central component of
student learning.

institutional practice in a variety of contexts.

student engagement results are
being used is one of NSSE’s most
important activities.
 NSSE results are being used across
all types of institutions.
 The following slides illustrate how
NSSE data can inform educational
policy and practice and provide
examples of how specific institutions
have used their NSSE results in
productive ways.
Internal Campus Uses
 Gauge status of campus
priorities
 Examine changes in
student engagement
between first and senior
years

Supporting NSSE Use in Accreditation
 NSSE Accreditation Toolkits – resource tailored to
regional and program accreditors
 Maps NSSE items to accreditation standards /criteria
to support data use in accreditation
Example of Data Use: Increasing
Academic Challenge
FAYETTEVILLE STATE UNIVERSITY
 Finding: Student reported levels of
writing and time spent preparing for
class were lower than institution
desired.
 Action: Began providing NSSE data
disaggregated by major to department
chairs so that areas of potential
improvement could be identified in
various fields of study. The institution
also increased its investment in learning
communities and development of
capstone courses to strengthen writing
across the curriculum and levels of
class preparation.
Example of Data Use: Enriching the
First Year Experience
WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY
 Finding: NSSE results indicated the
campus was not meeting student
expectations for collaborative
learning, student-faculty interaction,
and learning in community.
 Action: Freshman Focus learning
communities were created to
provide all incoming freshmen the
opportunity to engage in an
extensive living-learning community
system.
Example of Data Use:
Student – Faculty Interaction
CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY FRESNO
 Finding: NSSE results showed that
student-faculty interaction was lower
than expected.
 Action: Student success task force
identified ways to improve student
success. Participated in Building
Engagement and Attainment for
Minority Students (BEAMS) program
to develop Mentoring Institute. Now
200+ faculty members, staff and
student mentors have been trained.
Example of Data Use: Enriching
Educational Experiences
JACKSONVILLE STATE
UNIVERSITY
 Finding: Student reported
engagement in service-learning
and other enriching experiences
was not as high as institution
desired.
 Action: A new Office of Leadership
and Service was created to
coordinate service learning
opportunities, promote service
learning, and provide support to
faculty interested in developing
service learning courses.
Example of Data Use: Supportive
Environment and Retention
SOUTHERN CONNECTICUT STATE
UNIVERSITY
 Finding: BCSSE and NSSE data from
multiple years showed that nonreturning students had different levels
of relationships with faculty, peers,
and administrative personnel than
returning students.
 Action: NSSE results on supportive
environment and quality of interactions
related to persistence helped focused
institutional action on increasing
support for learning and promoting
quality interactions to aid retention
efforts.
Example of Data Use: Faculty and
Staff Development
ILLINOIS STATE UNIVERSITY
 Finding: Needed to increase
campus dialogue relevant to
student learning among
students, faculty, and student
affairs personnel alike.
 Action: A four-part series,
focusing on manageable
methods to improve the quality
of student writing, was
developed for faculty based on
the data from the FSSE and
NSSE surveys.
Example of Data Use: Foster
Collaboration and Focus
TEXAS CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY
 Finding: Initially saw lower NSSE
and FSSE scores than desired on
various engagement activities.
 Action: Increased institutional
attention and energy surrounding
student engagement. Worked to
increase collaborative initiatives
between Academic and Student
Affairs to enhance student
engagement in and out of the
classroom.
