NSSE 2004:  NSSE 2004 Fifth conducted report 160,000 first-year and senior students randomly sampled from 470 institutions Objectives Provide data to colleges and universities to use for improving undergraduate education, inform state accountability and accreditation efforts, and facilitate national and sector bench-marking efforts, among others NSSE 2004- Findings:  NSSE 2004- Findings Selected results Promising findings Disappointing findings Other key findings Faculty Survey of Student Engagement Selected Findings:  Selected Findings When faculty members expect students to study more and arrange class toward this end, students do so Students at historically Black colleges are more likely to participate in community service related to a course and report gaining more in personal, social, and ethical development Selected Findings:  Selected Findings Students who engage in “deep” learning activities report greater educational and personal gains from college, participate in more enriching educational experiences, perceive campus to be supportive, and are more satisfied overall with college Promising Findings:  Promising Findings Since 2000, some aspects of the student experience have improved. For example, today more seniors: Participate in service learning (+7%) Have serious conversations with students with different social, political, and religious views (+10%) Perceive their campus to be helpful, considerate, and flexible (+15%) Promising Findings:  Promising Findings Some findings for all students: About 9 of 10 students rate their college experience as “good” or “excellent” and 82% would “probably” or “definitely” attend the same school if they were starting school again Four-fifths of fraternity and sorority members participate in a fundraising event compared with only 43% of non-Greek students Promising Findings:  Promising Findings Three-fifths of seniors and 37% of first-year students do community service or volunteer work About half of non-denominational college students say that their institution substantially (“very much” or “quite a bit”) contributes to their development of a deepened sense of spirituality compared with only 19% of the students at public institutions Disappointing Findings:  Disappointing Findings Only one-tenth of students rely on newspapers or magazines as their primary source of local, national, or international news; more than half say television is their primary source Two-fifths of first-year students and a quarter of seniors “never” discuss ideas from their classes or readings with a faculty member outside of class Disappointing Findings:  Disappointing Findings One-fifth of all students spend no time exercising More than a quarter of all students have “never” attended an art exhibit, gallery, play, dance, or other theater performance during the current school year Other Key Findings:  Other Key Findings Time on Task:  Time on Task Time preparing for class, co-curricular activities, and on-campus work are all positively related to educational and spiritual growth Only 11% of full-time students spend 25 hours per week preparing for class (as professors recommend). Two-fifths spend 10 hours or less on class preparation per week. Time on Task:  Time on Task More than half of part-time students work off-campus 20+ hours per week About 19% of seniors spend 11+ hours per week caring for dependents A quarter of students spend 16+ hours per week relaxing and socializing- 8% spend more than 25 hours Time on Task:  Time on Task Living Arrangements:  Living Arrangements Forty-five percent of students live in campus housing (68% of

post-secondary education, and 25% went to a combination of these College Activities:  A “substantial amount” of engagement is defined to be at least 50% of all students reporting “often” or “very

Engagement:  Faculty Survey of Student Engagement Faculty Survey of Student Engagement:  Faculty Survey of Student Engagement Class preparation Students spend about half as much time studying as instructors expect (3 hours per class per week, vs. the 6 hours expected) Faculty in physical sciences, engineering, biological sciences expect more time per class, and students actually do spend more time on those courses Faculty Survey of Student Engagement:  Faculty Survey of Student Engagement How faculty spend class time Sciences and engineering report more time (59%) lecturing, while education faculty spend the least time lecturing (25%) There is little difference in time spent lecturing based on course level overall, though in the social sciences, more time is spent lecturing in lower level courses (53%) than higher level courses (44%) Faculty Survey of Student Engagement:  Education faculty devote more time to small groups than other disciplines Biological/life sciences faculty spend about one-fourth of class time to experiential activities, which include labs and field work Faculty Survey of Student Engagement Faculty Survey of Student Engagement:  Faculty Survey of Student Engagement Full-time versus part-time faculty Part-time faculty expect students to study about one hour less than full-time faculty, five hours vs. six hours, respectively Part-time faculty expect that students spend less than 3 hours studying for their courses, while full-time faculty expect their students to spend 3.5 hours per week on their classes Full-time faculty spend less time on
