Student survey randomly hits classrooms

A survey encouraging students to share how actively engaged they are when it comes to their education will randomly hit City College classrooms beginning late March and continue throughout the month of April.

The Community College Survey of Student Engagement, or CCSSE, will be administered for the second time since 2008, when City College’s Planning, Research and Institutional Effectiveness office began its first of three surveys. More than 585 institutions across the country and Canada have conducted the survey to give educators a better idea in aiding student success.

“The more we understand about our students’ behaviors and attitudes, the better we can respond,” PRIE research analyst Anne Danenberg said.  “We can help students be more successful to the educational process with continuous improvements in our programs on campus.”

Participating classrooms are chosen at random by the CCSSE program located at the University of Texas at Austin. Not all classrooms on campus will be asked to fill out the survey. According to Danenberg, only 10 percent of City College classes will be surveyed, but the scientific system randomly selects a diverse amount of classrooms to successfully survey the college.

“[CCSSEE] provides concrete data for student success and our goals are centered on that,” said PRIE’s Rose Fassett, administrative assistant. “All responses will be confidential.”

The PRIE office hopes to gain knowledge to assess student experiences on campus with faculty and the use of college support services. The surveys will also show how the Counseling Department Assessment Center helps students or if there are areas needed for improvement.

According to PRIE Dean Marybeth Buechner, the 2008 survey results showed that full-time students scored higher on levels of engagement compared to part-time students and “76 percent of students spend between one and 10 hours per week preparing for class.”

Buechner said the student engagement surveys also help them understand the daily lives of students. The 2008 results showed that 46 percent of students list working full-time as a likely reason to withdraw from class.

The results will be uploaded to the City College Web site under the “Inside SCC” tab by the end of summer.

“[CCSSE] is not a measure of motivation, but it relates to the motivation of students,” Buechner said. “Even though [students] think they are working hard, if they are spending less than two hours a week studying, that’s not entirely realistic.”
