The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) is a survey of first year students and seniors examining what students say they do, as well as what they perceive their institutions emphasize in the area of student engagement.

A companion survey, the Beginning College Survey of Student Engagement (BCSSE), asks incoming freshmen about experiences they had in high school that prepare them for higher education, as well as what their expectations are for their first year in college.

The Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) is a complimentary survey to the NSSE and asks faculty, instructors, and graduate students who teach for their feedback on their perceptions of student engagement as well as instructional strategies and practices.
