BCSSE is transitioning to a new dashboard environment that will provide online reporting including all institutional and student advising reports. The reports will be live and dynamic, allowing you to filter and download specific reports. More details and updates to the report section below will occur later this spring. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions.
Reports & Data
Using Your BCSSE Advising Reports
BCSSE institutions receive BCSSE Advising Reports for their entering first-year students, transfer students, and older students. Though the interface, institutions can sort and filter which of these reports to download, with each report saved as a unique student-specific report.
BCSSE Institutional Reports
After the close of the fall survey administration, each participating institution receives a BCSSE Institutional Report for each student group surveyed. Reports provide the frequency responses for all survey items by overall results and by two student characteristic groups: first-generation status and prior or expected grades. Also provided are mean score results for each of the BCSSE scales, again, by overall results and by the two student characteristic groups.Below are a couple of example pages for each type of report for the three students groups. Full report examples are available upon request.”
BCSSE-NSSE Institutional Report and Data
Institutions participating in both BCSSE and NSSE in the same academic year receive a BCSSE–NSSE Combined Report and a merged BCSSE–NSSE data file with their NSSE Institutional Report. The BCSSE-NSSE Combined Report includes supporting resources sent to participating colleges and universities. With extensive use of color and graphics, the reports are designed to be shared widely.
These combined results provide a comprehensive portrait of the first-year experience, enabling institutions to compare expectations with actual engagement and to analyze differences among diverse student populations.
