NSSE Survey

Posted: February 14, 2013

Thank you for your interest in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)!  NSSE queries students about their participation in activities that support the educational goals of Scripps College and is currently the most nationally-recognized instrument for collecting, measuring, and comparing information pertaining to student activities and their support of academic endeavors. In particular, NSSE focuses on activities research has consistently shown support students’ intellectual and social development.

If you are a first-year or senior student at Scripps, you are eligible to participate in this survey. If so, you should have received an email message on February 12 from President Lori Bettison-Varga inviting you to participate in this year’s NSSE. That email message contains a customized web link that is unique to you—click on that link and it will take you to the online survey. Filling out the questionnaire takes about 15 minutes and your participation is completely voluntary.

If you cannot locate that email message from February 12, there will be reminder email messages with the link sent out to first-year and senior students in the coming weeks, so keep your eye out for those.

Scripps College has participated in NSSE over the last decade and the results are shared with administrators and trustees. In addition, NSSE is being administered this year by over 620 institutions nationwide.

This webpage has answers to frequently asked questions that students have about participating in NSSE; for more information, you can explore the entire NSSE website.

If you have any questions about NSSE at Scripps, please contact Jonathan Lew (Research Associate) or Junelyn Peeples (Director) at the Office of Assessment and Institutional Research at assessir@scrippscollege.edu or (909) 607-1892.
