CCSSE (Community College Survey of Student Engagement)

What is CCSSE?

"CCSSE provides information on student engagement, a key indicator of learning and, therefore, of the quality of community colleges. The survey, administered to community college students, asks questions that assess institutional practices and student behaviors that are correlated highly with student learning and student retention. The CCSSE survey is a versatile, research-based tool appropriate for multiple uses. It is a benchmarking instrument, establishing national norms on educational practice and performance by community and technical colleges; a diagnostic tool, identifying areas in which a college can enhance students' educational experiences; and monitoring device, documenting and improving institutional effectiveness over time." --from
