Student Engagement – CCSSE Research-based measures Activities that promote student success Communicated through five benchmarks www.ccsse.org
Student Engagement Active & Collaborative Learning This is a technical college where a student is supposed to receive textbook learning with hands on instructions. BUT its not always what happens in most classrooms. A lot of the instructors tell the students here is the material and the assignment is due on this date- Good Luck!
Student Engagement Student Effort When employers were questioned about the important things they looked for in employees their #1 response was that they show up for work every day. Same thing is true for college. Regular attendance is one of top things for a successful completion of college.
Student Engagement Academic Challenge I just graduated high school back in May and didn't know what to expect from college. Everyone told me that it was a lot different than high school and I see what they mean. I actually like it better than high school.
Student Engagement Student-Faculty Interaction I feel like faculty need to just be vocal in their assignments and expectations. I feel many instructors are purposely vague in order to thin out those who dont listen quite as well.
Student Engagement Support for Learners I do think instructors and advisors play a huge role in the success of the student. I think most of the time a new student will need reassurance. They may feel intimidated by advisors to discuss goals.
Measures Performance Targets Think of strategic ways to reach goals Not reaching target is NOT a failure Not trying is a failure
Measures Ideally – a quantifiable measure of impact on student performance Engagement, persistence or learning Next best – a quantifiable measure of activity that supports student performance
Measures Activities/Measures will vary by area Instructional – student engagement and persistence Student Services – student engagement and support of engagement Administrative/Support Services – support of engagement
Measures Instructional Examples Engagement Measure: Faculty teaching ENG 100 will meet with each student for a fifteen minute mid-term conference to discuss career plans. Persistence Measure: Successful course completion rates (e.g., C or better) for ENG 100 will increase from an average 60% to 64% without lowering standards.
Measures Student Services Examples 90% of students who receive probation counseling will avoid suspension Students will report 90% satisfaction with Financial Aid counseling
Measures Administrative/Support Service Examples HR will fill 95% of all vacancies within two months with qualified personnel. Students report at least 90% satisfaction with quality of food through Food Services Survey. IR will return instructor/course evaluation results to divisions within four weeks of the start of the next semester.
