Currently Inactive Surveys

NSSE: The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) is administered to a sample of second semester freshman and exiting seniors. EKU participates every three (3) years. The NSSE was designed to assess the extent to which students are engaged in empirically-derived, good educational practices and what they gain from their college experiences. In this it differs from many other surveys that are more oriented to student satisfaction than to specific educational outcomes.
