Employee Enhancement Days! Today's Gusties: Using Data to Understand our StudentsFebruary 6, 2020 at 11:45 p.m.

Do you have questions about how the current generation of college students thinks, feels, and dreams?  At Gustavus we learn a lot about our students through personal interaction, but if we want “big picture” information we often use student surveys that also let us track national trends.  Surveys like NSSE (National Survey of Student Engagement) and BCSSE (Beginning College Survey of Student Engagement) let us see how our Gusties respond to questions about their preparation, goals, expectations, and state of mind, in the first year and beyond.  We can also see how they compare to students nation wide, and how their responses have changed over the years.

The Institutional Student Learning Outcomes (ISLO) Committee looks at data sources and needs for the Gustavus community and discusses how this information can be used to promote student success.  We want to share some of what we have learned about today’s Gusties, and we also want to hear suggestions from you. So come learn about the information available to you, and help us support our students and tell our story to the world!
