NSSE Sightings, NSSE’s blog, shares current findings and more from NSSE, FSSE, BCSSE, and other projects at the Center for Postsecondary Research.
The latest postings feature tips for assessing intersectional experiences, using cross-sectional data, creating Excel reports with R, and assessing data during times of crisis including what NSSE campuses can learn from their Spring 2020 administration and new BCSSE questions about the impact of the pandemic on high school graduates.
Other posts provide information about the relationships between creative course activities, residential learning communities, and online learning with student engagement as well as the experiences of conservative students on campus and the social and political causes that undergraduates are active in.
Postings that include faculty perspectives include an overview of the faculty role in student sense of belonging, teaching practices of STEM faculty, and environments that support good teaching practices.
