NSSE and FSSE
The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) "obtains, on an annual basis, information from hundreds of four-year colleges and universities nationwide about student participation in programs and activities that institutions provide for their learning and personal development. The results provide an estimate of how undergraduates spend their time and what they gain from attending college. Survey items on The National Survey of Student Engagement represent empirically confirmed "good practices" in undergraduate education. That is, they reflect behaviors by students and institutions that are associated with desired outcomes of college." - http://nsse.iub.edu
The Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) "is a project coordinated by the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) at Indiana University Bloomington. FSSE ... measures faculty members’ expectations of student engagement in educational practices that are empirically linked with high levels of learning and development. The survey also collects information about how faculty members spend their time related to professorial activities and the kinds of learning experiences their institution emphasizes." - http://nsse.iub.edu
