1 2008 National Survey of Student Engagement – SUNY Oneonta Patty Francis Steve Perry Fall 2008

2 An Introduction: NSSE and the Concept of Student Engagement

3 What is Student Engagement?  What students do -- time and energy devoted to educationally purposeful activities  What institutions do -- using effective educational practices to induce students to do the right things  Educationally effective institutions channel student energy toward the right activities

4 Time on task (Tyler, 1930s) Quality of effort (Pace, s) Student involvement (Astin, 1984) Social, academic integration (Tinto, 1987, 1993) Good practices in undergraduate education (Chickering & Gamson, 1987) College impact (Pascarella, 1985) Student engagement (Kuh, 1991, 2005) Foundations of Student Engagement

5 Seven Principles of Good Practice in Undergraduate Education (Chickering & Gamson, 1987; Pascarella & Terenzini, 2005) Student-faculty contact Active learning Prompt feedback Time on task High expectations Experiences with diversity Cooperation among students

6 National Survey of Student Engagement (pronounced “nessie”) Assesses the extent to which students engage in educational practices associated with high levels of learning and development

7 NSSE Benchmarks of Effective Educational Practice Level of Academic Challenge Active & Collaborative Learning Enriching Educational Experiences Student – Faculty Interaction Supportive Campus Environment

8 NSSE Benchmark Definitions  Level of Academic Challenge - Engagement in intellectually challenging and creative work.  Active & Collaborative Learning - Engagement in collaborative learning and learning in different settings.  Student-Faculty Interaction - Student engagement with faculty as role models and mentors.  Supportive Campus Environment - Quality of campus environment to support student success.  Enriching Educational Experiences - Participation in many activities not typically completed by first-year students (e.g., internships, capstone courses, study abroad).

9 Survey Administration  Administered to random samples of first-year & senior students  Administration occurs in the spring academic term  Paper & Web-based survey  Multiple follow-ups to increase response rates  Administered 2003, 2005 and 2008 at Oneonta

10 NSSE 2008 & Selected Oneonta Results

11 NSSE 2008 Respondent Characteristics First-YearSenior Respondents Response Rate 40%39% Female 71%65% Caucasian/White 78%83% Transfer 6%45% Full-time 100%97% Live On-campus 90%30% Traditional Age 99%85%

12 Overall, Oneonta scores were similar or higher, especially for seniors. Selected Oneonta Results on NSSE Benchmarks Compared to Other SUNY Institutions:

13 Oneonta Benchmark Scores Compared to SUNY Institutions LACOneonta SUNY Peers First-Year Senior ACL First-Year Senior *** SFI First-Year Senior *** EEE First-Year Senior *** SCE First-Year *** Senior *** ***p<.001

14 For both student cohorts, almost all scores increased from 2003 to 2008, some markedly. Selected Oneonta Results on NSSE Benchmarks Over Time:

15 First-Year StudentsSeniors Level of Academic Challenge (LAC)

16 First-Year StudentsSeniors Active and Collaborative Learning (ACL)

17 First-Year StudentsSeniors Student-Faculty Interaction (SFI)

18 First-Year StudentsSeniors Enriching Educational Experiences (EEE)

19 First-Year StudentsSeniors Supportive Campus Environment (SCE)

20 For seniors, Oneonta scores were similar or higher but for first-year students Oneonta scores were lower overall. Selected Oneonta Results Compared to National Peer Institutions:

21 Oneonta Benchmark Scores Compared to National Peer Institutions LACOneonta Carnegie Class NSSE 2008 First-Year **52.9 ** Senior ACL First-Year ***42.5 *** Senior ***50.8 *** SFI First-Year ***34.6 ** Senior *** EEE First-Year Senior ** SCE First-Year Senior *** **p<.01 ***p<.001

22 Who Were These Peer Institutions?  NSSE Institutions - Consisted of all 714 institutions participating in NSSE 2008  Carnegie Class Institutions  Consisted of 46 non-SUNY institutions in Oneonta’s Carnegie Class (i.e., Master’s colleges and universities – smaller programs)  Included relatively large public institutions as well as small privates

23 Recommendations

24 1.Oneonta should initiate a campus-wide discussion of student engagement and strategies for enhancing this process, to include faculty, staff, and students.

25 2.Oneonta should focus on initiatives to improve engagement with first-year students.

26 3.These initiatives should target the following areas: Student-Faculty Interaction (SFI) Active and Collaborative Learning (ACL) Level of Academic Challenge (LAC)

27 4.Aspirational goal: To compare favorably to other institutions in our Carnegie Class, for both first-year students and seniors, when the NSSE is next conducted in 2011.
