More than 470,000 students from 713 institutions in the US and Canada completed the 2014 survey. Each participating institution's report binder includes several standard reports of survey results, an overview of the data, and many supporting resources to support these colleges and universities in interpreting and sharing results, identifying priorities for action, and formulating and implementing plans for improvement. Thoroughly redesigned to accompany the updated NSSE survey, the new report's extensive use of color and graphics facilitates accessibility to the data and wide sharing of the results. Reports for FSSE and BCSSE participants, updated as well, are also included in the report binder. A sample Institutional Report
2014 is available on the NSSE website.

Dramatically different from 30 years ago, higher education faculty today are largely non-tenure-track. In roles that have been unbundled into teaching, research, or service, they are often provided little institutional support and have minimal connection to the institution and enterprise. The absence of policies and practices aligned with the realities facing this new majority faculty has significant implications for how faculty can be involved in student learning outcomes assessment. This paper, NILOA's 21st Occasional Paper, explores the potential for non-tenure-track faculty to meaningfully contribute to student learning outcomes assessment and outlines policies and practices that can facilitate such contributions. read more >>
A new report from PAS in conjunction with the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center finds that 31 million students who enrolled in college during the past 20 years left without receiving a degree or certificate. Seventh in the Clearinghouse's Signature Report series, this report presents findings showing that nearly a third of these students—a key group for the national college completion agenda—had only minimal interaction with the higher education system during their enrollment. This national study comes from enrollments of students from the past 20 years across nearly all U.S. degree-granting institutions and is based on student-level data made available by more than 3,600 colleges and universities participating in the Clearinghouse, which tracks 96% of college enrollments nationwide. read more >>
