Sample Institutional Report Package
The Institutional Report package—thoroughly redesigned to accompany the update to the NSSE questionnaire—includes several standard reports, an overview of the data, and many supporting resources sent to participating colleges and universities. With extensive use of color and graphics, the new reports are designed to be shared widely.
The report package is delivered in August of the administration year and the Major Field Report is delivered in the fall. It is available in a binder, electronically via the secure Institution Interface, and in the Online Institutional Report (new as of 2013; view a demo version).
NSSE Standard Report Samples
Below are samples from the Institutional Report package featuring actual data for a fictional institution—NSSEville State University. Samples for FSSE and BCSSE participants are also displayed.
Several NSSE reports were new or redesigned for the updated survey. The Snapshot provides a concise and easy-to-digest summary of key results, with further details provided in the Engagement Indicators and High-Impact Practices reports which replace the former NSSE Benchmarks of Effective Educational Practice. Item-by-item frequencies and means and comparison groups are now provided side-by-side in the downloadable Frequencies and Statistical Comparisons report. Other materials include sample data files, codebooks, survey overviews, Accreditation Toolkits, Webinars, and the Guide to Online Resources—all designed to assist in the interpretation, dissemination, and use of NSSE results.
Data Files and CodebooksNSSE returns the raw data with student identifiers to institutions for additional analysis and merging with other school records. Data are delivered in SPSS format, or other formats upon request. The codebooks detail all variables in the data.
