“Assessing Student Engagement Using NSSE and CLASSE”
講演概要During the inaugural year of the National Survey of Student Engagement, NSSE team members talked to faculty at eight colleges and universities from across the country. They discovered that some faculty did not realize that several of the practices covered by the NSSE survey, the College Student Report, were important to student learning. Other faculty reported that their students were engaged and wondered why it was necessary to collect data about students' perceptions of their college experiences. NSSE results were disseminated later that year, and many assessment coordinators reported that numerous faculty members who were confronted with negative results responded, "This is not true in my class, my students are very engaged."
Because of the discrepancy between what students and faculty were reporting, we partnered with the NSSE staff in creating a faculty version of the College Student Report, now known as the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) which to date has been used by 314 four-year colleges and universities. The FSSE focused on the importance faculty placed on various engaging activities and the extent to which faculty used these activities in their classes. When confronted with discrepancies between faculty members and students' responses to FSSE and NSSE, some faculty members continued to respond,"Not in my class."
During the presentation, I will talk about the various NSSE surveys, and then go into more detail about using CLASSE, a classroom level survey.
