UW-Green Bay relies on several methods of assessing student experiences and outcomes. Locally designed surveys for New Freshman, Graduating Seniors and recent Alumni guide campus decision-making. Nationally administered surveys and assessment tests, such as the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) and the College Basic Academic Subjects Exam (College BASE), put the UWGB experience into a larger context.
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.
