National Survey of Student Engagement

The Center for Post-secondary Research at Indiana University developed a widely-known national benchmark assessment called the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). Colleges and universities use this assessment tool to determine how students are engaging inside and outside the classroom. Students are asked about hours spent doing a variety of activities, plans to take part in certain courses, projects and activities. 

 

MSUB has participated in this assessment during spring semester 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, and 2016.

Community College Survey of Student Engagement

The Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) is a national survey of community college students developed by the University of Texas at Austin.  CCSSE provides information on student engagement, a key indicator of learning and, therefore, of the quality of community colleges.
