The National Survey of Student Engagement (N.S.S.E.) measures collegiate quality in terms of: 1) the amount of time and effort students put into their studies and other educational activities, and 2) how the institution deploys its resources and organizes the curriculum and other learning opportunities to encourage student participation in extra-curricular activities. Its annual report allows institutions to identify aspects of the undergraduate experience inside and outside the classroom that can be improved through changes in policies and practices to be consistent with best practices in higher education.
