NSSE's Commitment to Data Quality
As part of NSSE's commitment to transparency as well as continuous improvement, we routinely assess the quality of our survey and resulting data, and we embrace our responsibility to share the results with the higher education community. This Psychometric Portfolio is a framework for presenting our studies of the validity, reliability, and other indicators of quality of NSSE's data, including analysis of data subsets defined by a variety of student and institutional characteristics. It serves higher education leaders, researchers, and professionals who have an interest in using NSSE data and trusting their results.
Within the portfolio, each study is described in a brief technical report that includes research questions, data, methods, results, selected references, and more. When available, complete reports and research papers are provided for studies that have been presented at conferences and published in journals and magazines.
