CCSSE Student Survey Planning for 2017

CCSSE and SOSE 2017

The Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) is a nationwide survey of community college students that is conducted at MJC every 2 years, in collaboration with the Community College Leadership Program at the University of Texas at Austin. Results from the CCSSE have been utilized for:

(1) Assessment of core indicators of institutional effectiveness

(2) Measurement of student engagement as a reflection of institutional quality

(3) Identification of areas of needed institutional improvement

(4) Application of an equity lens to determine if there are gaps between student groups. 

Details about the history of offerings of the CCSSE student survey at MJC are available at the CCSSE at MJC website.


The 2017 CCSSE student survey conducted at MJC was finished as of mid-April.  47 courses participated out of 48 total courses recommended by CCSSE for surveying. Nearly 1200 completed surveys from these courses have subsequently been analyzed. Overall response rate for students in the surveyed MJC 2017 courses was 61%, which placed MJC at 10th highest response rate among the 25 nationwide "extra large enrollment" institutions participating in the 2017 cycle.
