National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)

The National Survey for Student Engagement (NSSE) is used to collect data from students at four-year colleges and universities in order to assess the extent to which students engage in a variety of educational effectiveness activities.  During the years that the NSSE is not administered, the Quality Enhancement Plan Survey is administered locally and evaluates the same content as the NSSE.  See the QEP website for more information.
