WNCC Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) Reports

The Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) is a product and service of the Center for Community College Student Engagement in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy at the University of Texas at Austin.

CCSSE was launched in 2001, in response to a recognized need for a student engagement survey specifically designed for community and technical colleges with the intention of producing new information about community college quality and performance that would provide value to institutions in their efforts to improve student learning and retention, while also providing policymakers and the public with more appropriate ways to view the quality of undergraduate education.

CCSSE provides information on student engagement, a key indicator of learning and, therefore, of the quality of community colleges. The survey, administered to community college students, asks students about their college experiences - how they spend their time; what they feel they have gained from their classes; how they assess their relationships and interactions with faculty, counselors, and peers; what kinds of work they are challenged to do; how the college supports their learning; and so on. These questions help assess institutional practices and student behaviors that are correlated highly with student learning and student retention.
