Sample Institutional Report

The NSSE Institutional Report includes several standard reports (view sample images below), an overview of the data from that year's administration, and many supporting resources for participating colleges and universities. With extensive use of color and graphics, the reports are designed to be shared widely.

The report is delivered in August of the administration year, and is available electronically via the secure Institution Interface and in the Online Institutional Report (demo version). The Major Field Report and the Report Builder are available in the fall.
