Celebrating NSSE’s 20th! We're just getting started.

We are thrilled to commemorate twenty years of NSSE! Since 2000, institutions of all types—from research universities to baccalaureate colleges—have adopted NSSE as an important component of their assessment programs. NSSE has helped focus the national discourse about college quality on teaching and learning and has provided diagnostic, actionable data to inform the improvement of undergraduate education.

50% of first-year, distance learners rated their quality of interactions with their advisors as 'Excellent'

I find it to be a good instrument that measures quality on a variety of fronts. The data can be used to supplement a variety of strategic initiatives from large-scale strategic plans, and all the way down to the departmental level.
