2017 Survey Instrument
The Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) was designed to complement the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), which is administered to undergraduate students. FSSE measures instructional staff (faculty, instructors, graduate students who teach, etc.) expectations for student engagement in educational practices that are empirically linked with student learning and development. FSSE focuses on:
- How often instructional staff use effective teaching strategies;
- How much instructional staff encourage students to collaborate;
- The nature and frequency of student interactions with instructional staff;
- Opportunities for students to engage diverse perspectives;
- The importance instructional staff place on increasing institutional support for students;
- The importance instructional staff place on various areas of learning and development; and
- How instructional staff organize their time, both in and out of the classroom.

New in 2013, FSSE participating institutions may append up to two topical modules – short sets of questions on designated topics such as academic advising, civic engagement, inclusivity and engagement with cultural diversity, technology, and/or writing. Modules allow for deeper exploration of important areas based on campus needs.
