Colleges and universities using survey data to improve student learning and success Student engagement data from an Indiana University research center helps colleges and universities make more informed decisions. That's according to recently released examples of how National Survey of Student Engagement results have been helping schools across the country focus on student success.
"Digging Deeper to Focus and Extend Data Use" documents how 23 schools have used data from the National Survey of Student Engagement, known as NSSE, to improve undergraduate education.
"These institutions have moved beyond merely collecting data for compliance," said NSSE Institute Associate Director Jillian Kinzie. "They are managing and leveraging their results to realize improvement in the student experience. Specifically, they are sharing data with more departments and units, creating accessible data visualizations, and using results to motivate meaningful change to instructional practice and institutional policy on their campuses."
