On February 10, 2016, all first-year and senior ISU students will receive an email from President Larry Dietz requesting their participation in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). Two students will be randomly selected for a chance to win one of two mini iPads. More information about NSSE and how the results are used can be found by browsing this website. Any questions or concerns can be directed to Ryan Smith, University Assessment Services, email@example.com or 309-438-2135.
In order to engage individual colleges and university departments in meaningful conversations about student academic engagement, University Assessment Services administers three engagement surveys. More information about the engagement surveys can be found by clicking on the survey links. The surveys are the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE), and the Beginning College Survey of Student Engagement (BCSSE).
