The National Survey of Student Engagement, or NSSE ("nessie"), has been administered through the Office of Academic Assessment at UNI every spring since the 2005-2006 school year. NSSE was originally identified for use, along with other data, to examine student learning outcomes related to the goals of the UNI Liberal Arts Core, or general education program.
Beyond its use with the Core, NSSE provides information on student experiences and perceptions that is used by a wide range of academic and student affairs departments and offices across campus. For example, NSSE data have been used by the UNI Diversity Council, the Foundations of Excellence studies of the first-year experience and the transfer year experience at UNI, First Year Council, and the Office of Academic Advising. Data gained from NSSE are shared on web sites maintained by the Office of Academic Assessment and the Office of Institutional Research.
Institutions participating in the VSA program measure student involvement on campus using one of four national surveys. Results from the one survey are reported for a common set of questions selected as part of VSA. Following are the selected results from the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). The questions have been grouped together in categories that are known to contribute to student learning and development. The results reported below are based on the responses of seniors who participated in the survey.
