National Survey of Student Engagement. Promoting Student Learning and Institutional Improvement: Lessons from NSSE at 13. Indiana University Center for Postsecondary Research, Bloomington, 2012. Pages: 52.
This report presents the 2012 results of a survey conducted among 285 000 students attending 546 colleges and universities in the United States. This survey is held annually and aims to provide comparative information on effective educational practices. This year, the report also includes a synthesis of some of the key findings of the survey in the past 13 years. The report shows that, overall, deep approaches to learning, such as those favouring higher-order reasoning or requiring integration of knowledge from multiple sources, have proved to be effective educational practices. Other results include students’ concern with finances and its impact on academic performance, and how interaction with peers and faculty influences students’ engagement and satisfaction levels.
