Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE)
The CCSSE is administered in the spring quarter to credit students and gathers information about their overall college experience. The survey focuses on educational practices and student behaviors associated with higher levels of learning, persistence and completion.
Foothill College participated in the survey in 2012.
The sample of students is selected randomly. All faculty members teaching in the spring quarter are included in a pool from which the random sample of course sections is chosen to administer the survey in class. The survey takes students about 50 minutes to complete.
Results from the survey are distributed campus wide and presented to the Academic Senate, Classified Senate, and Administrator's Council.
