BCSSE results are used in many ways including academic advising, retention efforts, first-year program design and evaluation, accreditation self-studies, faculty and staff development, and recruitment. BCSSE website also includes many examples of how institutions are using their results.
Institutions administer BCSSE to first-year, transfer, and delayed entry students prior to the start of fall or winter classes. BCSSE collects data about entering students’ prior academic and co-curricular experiences, as well as their expectations for participating in educationally purposeful activities during the coming college year. Institutions that administer BCSSE to their first-year students entering in the fall, can be pair their BCSSE results with a NSSE administration at the end of the first college year, providing an in-depth understanding of first-year student engagement on your campus.

The Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) was designed to complement the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), which is administered to undergraduate students. This instructional staff version (for faculty, instructors, and graduate students who teach) focuses on:
Instructional staff perceptions of how often students engage in different activities.
The importance instructional staff place on various areas of learning and development.
The nature and frequency of instructional staff-student interactions.
How instructional staff organize their time, both in and out of the classroom.
The project is coordinated by the Indiana University Center for Postsecondary Research. FSSE is designed to measure instructional staff expectations for student engagement in educational practices that are empirically linked with high levels of learning and development.

What is student engagement?
Student engagement represents two critical features of collegiate quality. The first is the amount of time and effort students put into their studies and other educationally purposeful activities. The second is how the institution deploys its resources and organizes the curriculum and other learning opportunities to get students to participate in activities that decades of research studies show are linked to student learning.
