The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) is a survey designed to collect data in five areas: (a) participation in educationally purposeful activities, (b) institutional requirements regarding coursework, (c) perceptions of the college environment, (d) educational and personal growth, and (e) student background information. The NSSE is administered every three years to first-year and senior students during the spring semester.Current and previous NSSE survey instruments are located at http://nsse.iub.edu/html/survey_instruments.cfm
