Key Findings For Kirtland Community College – Developed in response to member college feedback, the new CCSSE Key Findings booklet is an individually tailored executive summary. The booklet provides college-specific data in an easy-to-read and easy-to-share format including: benchmark comparisons between your college, colleges of similar size, and the CCSSE cohort; highlights of the areas of highest and lowest student engagement at your college; results from the Promising Practices; and CCFSSE results.

CCFSSE (Faculty responses compared to Student Responses) Results – The Community College Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (CCFSSE) was designed as a companion to the Community College Student Report. The CCFSSE elicits information from faculty about their teaching practices, the ways they spend their professional time, both in and out of class, and their perceptions regarding students’ educational experiences.
The CCFSSE results will not only help member colleges identify areas of strength, but will also enable them to recognize challenges or gaps that may require further consideration. CCSSE member colleges are already using student survey results for internal review, benchmarking, and responding to accrediting agencies. The CCFSSE can be used to strengthen those endeavors and to promote faculty involvement. Furthermore, results from the CCFSSE can be used to target areas of focus for faculty development programs.
The CCFSSE report enables participating institutions to view faculty expectations and perceptions of student engagement alongside student responses. However, it is important to remember that the side-by-side tables, while illustrative, are not entirely equivalent – that is, CCSSE asks students to report perceptions and experiences across the period of the current academic year. Faculty, in contrast, are asked to describe their practices in a specific selected course, as well as to indicate their perceptions of student experiences at the college more generally.
Nonetheless, the comparisons of student and faculty responses provide a useful prompt for campus discussions, particularly in those areas where students and faculty seem to be reporting divergent perceptions of the same experience.
