The Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE)

CCSSE Survey Administrators Instructions and Script Available Here

The CCSSE provides information about effective educational practice in community colleges and assists institutions in using that information to strengthen student learning and persistence. Student engagement is defined as the amount of time and energy students invest in meaningful educational practices. Please contact our office for more information and customized reports using the CCSSE data.

*CCSSE 2017 will be administered during the spring semester - results available fall 2017!*


2015 Key Findings for Valencia College Report

The Key Findings report provides college-specific data in an easy-to-read and easy-to-share format including benchmark comparisons between your college, top-performing colleges, and the CCSSE Cohort. It also highlights aspects of highest and lowest student engagement at your college, as well as results from five of the CCSSE special-focus items. Select faculty survey (CCFSSE) data are also highlighted (cohort data are provided for colleges that did not administer CCFSSE). Note that this report only shows the base sample of 1,538 students. This report does not include the oversample, which is the additional students we invited to take the survey beyond the base sample that was randomly determined by CCSSE. A total of 3,868 students took the CCSSE from Valencia college.

CCSSE 2015 Cohort Overview

CCSSE utilizes a three-year cohort (2013 through 2015) of participating colleges in all of its data analyses, including the computation of benchmark scores. This cohort is referred to as the 2015 CCSSE Cohort. The 2015 CCSSE Cohort includes 704 institutions from 47 states, the District of Columbia, three Canadian provinces, plus Micronesia and the Marshall Islands. Three-hundred fifteen are classified as small (<4,500), 166 as medium (4,500-7,999), 148 as large (8,000-14,999), and 75 as extra-large institutions (15,000+) credit students. One hundred thirty-five of the colleges are classified as urban-serving, 160 as suburban-serving, and 409 as rural-serving.

Faculty Survey (CCFSSE) Reports 2015

The Community College Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (CCFSSE) 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. CCFSSE reports enable participating institutions to view faculty perceptions of student engagement alongside student responses. However, the side-by-side tables, while illustrative, are not entirely equivalent-that is, CCSSE asks students to report about their experiences across the period of the current academic year, while faculty are asked to report their perceptions of their students' engagement experiences in a specific selected course. The 2015 CCFSSE Cohort includes 257 institutions from 39 states, plus Micronesia. The CCFSSE was completed by 31,508 faculty members across the 2013, 2014, and 2015 administrations.
