Do Faculty Know What Students Are Truly Thinking?

submitted by

Immediately preceding the next faculty meeting, please join the assessment committee from 3 – 3:30pm on Wednesday, November 9th, in Hagfors Center room 106 for an opportunity to discuss the results of a recent pair of high-quality surveys of students and faculty.

In the spring of 2022, hundreds of Augsburg First Year and Senior students completed the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). This survey measures students’ perception of Academic Challenge, Student-Faculty Interactions, Quality of Interactions, and experience with High Impact Practices. Meanwhile, tens of faculty members (proportionally, a fine result!) provided their perception of students’ experiences in these same domains on the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE).

The combined NSSE-FSSE results offer a unique opportunity to directly compare student and faculty perspectives on a wide range of academic issues. Whether you teach in upper or lower-division courses – and regardless of your academic discipline – these data offer something for everyone.

A copy of the summary report will be made available to faculty members who RSVP in advance of the session. We will set aside the majority of the time for discussion of the results, so we encourage attendees to preview the findings. A recording of the event will be available for those who are unable to attend. Unfortunately, any recording can’t possibly offer the thrills and excitement of first-hand experience with such breathtaking data, so in-person attendance is highly encouraged.
