Every three years the Denver Campus administers the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) to first-year and senior students. This past month, July 2018, we kicked off the process for administering the NSSE in Spring 2019.
The NSSE is a nationally-normed survey that has become a gold standard for institutions gathering information from students with the goals of increasing student engagement, improving undergraduate education, facilitating benchmarking, and responding to external constituencies. CU Denver first used the NSSE in 2001 and most recently in 2016.
As part of OIRE’s commitment to analyzing, understanding, and disseminating the results of the NSSE surveys, we produce a wide variety of reports based upon the NSSE data. Examples of these reports will be found on our soon-to-be-revealed “Data Analytics” webpage as well as the NSSE webpage. More are available via the OIREportal and upon request.
Keep in mind that during the NSSE administration window, no other institutional surveys should be scheduled for administration to the Denver Campus first-year and senior students. If you have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Stroup-Benham. Additionally, if you would like to be a part of the NSSE Team that guides the administration process, communication strategies, analytic plans, and the like, please let Dr. Stroup-Benham know!
