To encourage participating institutions to showcase their FSSE findings, a list of sample analyses campuses can recreate on their own are featured below. The reports included here come from the population of institutions that participate in a FSSE administration year and can be used to contextualize faculty practices and perceptions on individual campuses. FSSE participants can recreate each illustration with their own data by downloading the SPSS syntax associated with these reports.
Many of the featured findings are based on survey items that were only asked during a particular FSSE administration; this is why some findings only feature results from one year.
Starting with FSSE 2013, sets of new, continuing, and updated items have been grouped into nine scales. These scales are organized under four themes that parallel engagement themes on NSSE.
FSSE measures various aspects of how faculty spend their time both in and out of the classroom. The reports below give estimated averages of how faculty spend their professional time overall, and how they allocate class time to various activities.
