The Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) is a product of the Center for Community College Student Engagement at the University of Texas at Austin. The survey was launched 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. CCSSE asks students about their college experiences to help assess institutional practices and student behaviors that are correlated highly with student learning and student retention.
The Community College Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (CCFSSE) is a product of the Center for Community College Student Engagement at the University of Texas at Austin. The survey elicits information from faculty about their teaching practices, the ways they spend their professional time both in and out of class, and their perceptions regarding students’ educational experiences. CCFSSEreports enable participating institutions to view faculty perceptions of student engagement alongside student responses and provide a useful prompt for campus discussions about student engagement and success while inciting interest in their CCSSEsurvey results.
