Freshmen and Seniors are invited each year to complete the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). NSSE allows us to assess our students' overall campus experiences, with an emphasis on their learning experiences. It also allows us to compare their experiences with those of students at our peer institutions. We use these data, in conjunction with data from direct assessments of student learning and our own surveys of graduating seniors, to make necessary changes to continually improve student learning experiences at Marshall University.
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.
