National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)

The NSSE is an annual inquiry into the extent to which students at four-year colleges and universities engage in an array of good educational practices.  Many of the questionnaire items deal with student behaviors that educational researchers have found to be highly correlated with the intense learning and personal development that are hallmarks of a meaningful college education.

Cal State San Marcos has participated in the NSSE survey during most spring terms since 2001. For full reports or for reports prior to 2005, please contact Cameron Stevenson in Institutional Planning and Analysis.
