Celebrating NSSE 20th!
We are thrilled to commemorate twenty years of NSSE! Since its first national administration in 2000, more than 1,600 bachelor’s degree-granting institutions—from research universities to baccalaureate colleges—have adopted NSSE as an important component of their assessment programs.
NSSE has helped focus the national discourse about college quality on teaching and learning and has provided colleges and universities diagnostic, actionable data to inform the improvement of undergraduate education.
Here are just a few of the noteworthy accomplishments in NSSE’s history:
- Over 5 million students surveyed
- More than 600 accounts of NSSE data-informed institutional action
- 1,654 institutions, with the majority participating on a regular basis
- More than 304,000 faculty from over 870 colleges and universities have participated in FSSE
To plan for NSSE’s third decade, we are launching a series of listening sessions and activities to gather input from NSSE institutional contacts, administrative leaders, assessment and institutional research professionals, faculty and staff, and higher education scholars regarding current needs and concerns about undergraduate education and student success. What aspects of student learning and success deserve further study? What is on the assessment horizon? What data needs do you anticipate? How do you expect to involve students in assessment?
We hope to interact with NSSE users at upcoming professional meetings and welcome your input.
