NSSE-Strada Partnership on Career Preparation
Learning about Undergraduates’ Preparation for Work and Careers: Leveraging the National Survey of Student Engagement, is a collaboration between NSSE and Strada Education Network (Strada) to address the current interest in work and career preparation by gathering data and developing assessment tools, reports and resources to assist colleges and universities and interested stakeholders learn more about the state of work and career preparation in undergraduate education.
NSSE tested a Work & Career Preparation item set in 2020 and will analyze how it performed with the goal to develop new NSSE and FSSE topical modules focused on preparation for work and career. The modules will be administered as part of the spring 2021 NSSE and FSSE. A dataset, internal analyses, reports for participating institutions, aggregate findings, and tailored reports will be produced. Findings will also be disseminated in presentations to relevant higher education audiences at national conferences and meetings, and in joint publications developed by NSSE and Strada.
