In Spring 2017, the MJC Office of Research and Planning coordinated two national student surveys that were conducted with our students during Spring semester 2017. These surveys are the Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) and the new Survey of Online Student Engagement (SOSE).
Based at the University of Texas at Austin Program in Higher Education Leadership, the CCSSE is grounded in extensive national research on the factors most positively associated with student engagement and student success. The CCSSE has been conducted at MJC in the years 2006, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015, and 2017. The SOSE is a new survey of online students which was pilot tested at MJC and other two-year colleges nationwide in 2017.
Several hundred colleges across the U.S. participated in the 2017 CCSSE and the SOSE. 15 colleges from California besides MJC participated in the 2017 CCSSE survey, including Bakersfield College, Barstow Community College, Berkeley City College, Butte College, Cerro Soso Community College, City College of San Francisco, College of Alameda, Crafton Hills College, Fresno City College, Laney College, Merritt College, Norco College, Palo Verde College, Porterville College, and Santa Monica College. Several Achieving the Dream (ATD) colleges across the U.S. are also participating.
