NATIONWIDE SURVEY ON STUDENT ENGAGEMENT (CCSSE) AT OCC THIS SPRING
What constitutes quality in the community college experience? Research shows that for many groups of students, the more actively engaged they are, the more likely they are to learn, to persist with their studies, and to attain their academic goals. Student engagement, therefore, is a valuable measure for assessing the quality of colleges’ educational practices and identifying ways they can help more students succeed. Orange Coast College is excited to join this effort by participating in a prominent national survey focused on, student learning, effort, support, and academic challenge, as well as student-faculty interactions in community colleges, the Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE). The survey is a project of the Center for Community College Student Engagement and the Community College Leadership Program at The University of Texas at Austin.
