Encouraging Student Participation in NSSE

To help you publicize NSSE survey administration and develop promotional materials for your campus, we have created:

  • a checklist of tips and ideas for ways to get information about NSSE out to students
  • a resource on acceptable survey promotion practices
  • a gallery of examples of how colleges and universities have promoted the NSSE survey

IDEAS FOR IMPROVING STUDENT RESPONSE RATES AVAILABLE IN NSSE WEBINAR ARCHIVES

 

View the NSSE Webinar Archive for recorded presentations on ways to encourage student participation in your next NSSE survey administration

PRESENTATION ON INCREASING RESPONSE RATES

Increasing Student Participation & Response Rates: What Works? 
Presenters: Rob Hudson, Barton College, Alex McCormick, NSSE, and Jillian Kinzie, NSSE 
Review a PDF presentation from the University of San Francisco Users Workshop help in April 2011. See how one campus improved their response rate and gain valuable suggestions from other institutions that have devised successful campaigns to encourage participation. The session also discusses how to maximize response rates without violating NSSE IRB standards.
