WHAT OUR STUDENTS AND EMPLOYEES Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) Student engagement is a broadly defined term used to refer to the extent to which students are actively involved in meaningful educational experiences and activities. The CCSSE measures five main factors related to student engagement: • Active and Collaborative Learning. • Student Effort. • Academic Challenge. • Student-Faculty Interaction. • Support for Learners. Let’s take a look at a CCSSE question/result* based upon racial identification (data is from the 2018 survey): How would you evaluate your entire educational experience at this college? • Excellent (4) • Fair (2) • Good (3) • Poor (1) Average Rating of Experience at NWTC Overall percent of students in parentheses.
