The NSSE National Data Project: Phase Two Report

By Chris Conway, Queen’s University and Huizi Zhao, HEQCO

Efforts to Improve Student Engagement Should Be Aimed at the Program, Student Service Level

Measuring student engagement is a valuable tool for postsecondary education institutions attempting to improve the student experience and evaluate educational quality. While student engagement surveys like the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) can be misleading when used for broader institutional comparisons, a recent study commissioned by the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO) found that they can reveal clear patterns of engagement that vary dramatically by program.

According to the study, The NSSE National Data Project: Phase Two Report, these patterns could help institutions develop targeted approaches to improving student engagement.
