The Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) was designed to complement the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), which is administered to undergraduate students. This instructional staff version (for faculty, instructors, and graduate students who teach) focuses on:
- Instructional staff perceptions of how often students engage in different activities.
- The importance instructional staff place on various areas of learning and development.
- The nature and frequency of instructional staff-student interactions.
- How instructional staff organize their time, both in and out of the classroom.
The project is coordinated by the Indiana University Center for Postsecondary Research. FSSE is designed to measure instructional staff expectations for student engagement in educational practices that are empirically linked with high levels of learning and development.
Since 2003, more than 304,000 instructional staff from more than 870 institutions have responded to FSSE.
