Survey of Entering Student Engagement (SENSE)

Administered during the fall term, SENSE focuses on the "front door" of the college experience. Grounded in research about what works in retaining and supporting entering students, SENSE collects and analyzes data about institutional practices and student behaviors in the earliest weeks of college. These data help understand students' critical early experiences and improve institutional practices that affect student success in the first college year.

Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) 

Administered during the spring to mostly returning students, CCSSE asks about institutional practices and student behaviors that are highly correlated with student learning and retention.
