Freshmen, Seniors Asked to Participate in Student Engagement Survey

February 14, 2019

St. John Fisher College is participating in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). The survey launched on Tuesday, Feb. 12, and will remain open until Friday, March 22. Freshmen and seniors are encouraged to participate, and members of both classes received the survey via email. The survey can also be accessed through Blackboard.

NSSE “assesses the extent to which students engage in educational practices associated with high levels of learning and development.” The survey will collect information from participating students in seven categories:

  • Participation in educationally purposeful activities
  • Institutional requirements and the challenging nature of coursework
  • Perceptions of the college environment
  • Estimates of educational and personal growth since starting college
  • Background and demographic information
  • Civic engagement
  • Inclusiveness and engagement with cultural diversity

“We will use the data collected from the survey to examine the learning experiences of our undergraduate students and identify ways in which these experiences can be improved both inside and outside the classroom,” said Kristin Anderson, coordinator of institutional assessment and planning. “We will receive our data reports in fall 2019 and will be sharing the results across campus at that time.”
