Each year the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) asks students at hundreds of colleges and universities to reflect on the time they devote to various learning activities.
In the spring 2014 semester, 1,503 freshman and senior IUP students participated. Below are some of their responses.
55% of first year students gave the quality of their interactions with their peers a "high" rating.
61% of seniors "frequently" explained course material to one or more students.
32% of first year and 52% of seniors "frequently" discussed career plans with faculty.
45% of first year students rated the quality of their interactions with faculty as "high."
26% of first year students "frequently" discussed course topics, ideas, or concepts with a faculty member outside of class.
Results from NSSE can provide prospective students with insights into how they might learn and develop at a given college.
