Frequently Asked Questions about NSSE
What is the NSSE?
A survey instrument that collects information from hundreds of four‐year colleges and universities about student participation in programs and activities that institutions provide for learning and personal development. Results provide an estimate of how undergraduates spend their time and what they gain from attending college. In addition, NSSE provides participating institutions reports that compare student responses to peer institutions.
The NSSE project is governed by the Indiana University Bloomington IRB, and additional information be found at: http://nsse.iub.edu/
What does NSSE ask?
The NSSE asks undergraduates about their in‐ and out‐of‐class activities, what they feel they have gained from classes, their assessment of the quality of interactions with faculty and students, and other educational activities (e.g. undergraduate research, study abroad, & internships).
