Research & Assessment

The primary purpose of Research and Assessment is to collect and analyze data about University of Cincinnati students to better understand their attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors. This information is primarily used to inform programs and policies for the university. Two of the main surveys used to collect this data are the National Survey of Student Engagement and the Student Satisfaction Inventory


National Survey of Student Engagement Results (NSSE)

Student engagement represents two critical features of collegiate quality. The first is the amount of time and effort students put into their studies and other educationally purposeful activities. The second is how the institution deploys its resources and organizes the curriculum and other learning opportunities to get students to participate in activities that decades of research studies show are linked to student learning. 


Student Satisfaction Inventory Results (SSI)

The Student Satisfaction Inventory gives you a powerful tool to improve the quality of student life and learning. It measures student satisfaction and priorities, showing readers how satisfied students are at their institutions as well as what issues are important to them. The survey covers areas such as Academic Advising, Admissions and Financial Aid Effectiveness, and Safety and Security.
