NSSE Administration Modes

Both Web-based and paper survey administration modes are available. We generally recommend Web-based modes, as these provide larger sample sizes, leading to more accurate population estimates, for the same cost. View the information and links below for more tips on choosing the best survey mode for your institution or call our office to speak with a Project Associate.


A detailed table comparing the three modes is available here.
