NSSE – You Betcha We’re in Canada, Too!
Angie Miller — Since 2004, Canadian institutions of higher education have participated in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). While the number of institutions and students that participate in the survey varies from year to year, Canadians have been a strong presence in the NSSE milieu. To illustrate the Canadian contribution to NSSE, the graphic above shows the number of Canadian institutions and students participating in NSSE since the 2013 update.
Canadian institutions have also participated in NSSE through consortia, groups of at least six institutions that participate in NSSE in the same year. Over the years, Canadians have created the Canadian Research Universities, Canadian U4, G13-x-Ontario, New Western Canadian Universities, and the Ontario Universities consortia.
As a new feature on the NSSE website, results from the participating Canadian institutions are now available on the Summary Tables page. These include combined results from 2016 and 2017 Canadian respondents, featuring frequencies, means, and Engagement Indicator statistics by sex and major, as well as a table of high-impact practice participation by various student characteristics.
