    Creating New Possibilities for Students Through Data Informed Advising Practices: Lessons from the NSSE Academic Advising Topical Module
    (NSSE and the Center for Postsecondary Research, 2023-04-26) Kinzie, Jillian; Cole, Jim
    Good academic advising is central to student success. Yet, students’ advising experiences can be uneven and advising tends to be one of the more under-supported campus services. This may be why only about half of students responding to NSSE describe the quality of the advising they receive as very good or excellent. This webinar offers an opportunity to consider the most recent results about first-year students’ academic advising experience from NSSE 2022 and the Academic Advising Topical Module.  We will highlight salient results across three institutional types – doctoral, masters and liberal arts – and discuss the dimensions of advising practice that deserve attention as institutions across the country invest in improving academic advising to provide holistic support.

    COVID Times and Student Engagement: Using and Interpreting NSSE 2021 Results
    (Indiana University Center for Postsecondary Research, 2021-11-18) McCormick, Alexander; Gonyea, Robert; Sarraf, Shimon; Cole, Jim; Kinzie, Jillian
    These slides were presented during a webinar, COVID Times & Student Engagement: Using and Interpreting NSSE 2021 Results NSSE results confirm that the coronavirus pandemic continued to have an impact on higher education and students in academic year 2020-21. For example, as students shifted to mostly remote instruction, participation in high-impact practices such as internships and study abroad understandably declined. Students also had fewer of the usual opportunities for collaborative learning and interactions with faculty, but some may have spent more time in academic preparation. While AY2021 may forever be marked by an asterisk, it is nonetheless important to explore results longitudinally, determine the appropriateness of comparison groups, examine differential impact on student subgroups, and share insights about how the disruption affected student engagement.
