BCSSE transitioned to a new dashboard environment that provides online reporting, including all institutional and student advising reports. The reports are live, allowing you to filter and download specific reports.
Reports & Data
Using Your BCSSE Advising Reports
BCSSE institutions receive BCSSE Advising Reports for their entering first-year students, transfer students, and older students. Using the BCSSE dashboards, institutions can sort and filter which of these reports to download, with each report saved as a unique student-specific report.
Institution examples of using BCSSE advising data can be found on the Working with BCSSE data page. Also see, "Building Academic Strengths: Using BCSSE for Strengths-Based Advising" for additional examples.
BCSSE Institutional Reports
All BCSSE reports will be available through the BCSSE Portal. Multiple dashboards contain your institutional summary results. Also, new in 2021 BCSSE insitutions can now filter their resyutls by studnet type. In addition, insititons can also compare their results to other insitutions.

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.
