NSSE is pleased to release the final of three data-informed stories and, as a result, the completed 2022 Engagement Insights—Survey Findings on the Quality of Undergraduate Education, an annual series detailing important and timely NSSE findings.
The first release, Rebounding Engagement: Has Higher Education Returned to "Normal"?, presents patterns of student engagement and time allocations, focusing on trends from 2019 to 2022 to explore shifts during the pandemic. As restrictions were rolled back over the 2021-22 academic year, did campus life recover? We also use data from the Experiences in Online Learning Topical Module to look at effective course structure across institutional types and student identities.
The second release, Digging Deeper into the Quality of High-Impact Practices, presents data from the NSSE HIP Quality Topical Module to gain a more nuanced understanding of three selected HIPs: internships, service-learning, and research with faculty. Parallel data from the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) also informed some of these findings.
This third release, Hot Topics in Higher Education: Mental Well-Being, Affordability, and Transferable Skills, addresses trending issues with results from a 2022 experimental set on mental wellness, BCSSE data from transfer/older students on perceptions of affordability, and data from the Development of Transferable Skills Topical Module in areas of skill development and their connections to student engagement.Read the Stories
