USING THE NATIONAL SURVEY OF STUDENT ENGAGEMENT TO ASSESS EDUCATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS
The National Survey of Student Engagement is a widely-used, annual snapshot of student participation in programs and activities that institutions provide to students for their learning and personal development. It provides an estimate of how students spend their time and what they gain from attending college. The time and energy that students devote to educationally purposeful activities is measured and can be used to promote change within the academy at the individual, departmental, college, and university level. Activities both in and out of the classroom are included. In this presentation, I will describe the instrument, its administration, and how it can be used to enhance the effectiveness of education programs at institutions of higher education.
