Specifically, colleges and universities
use their CSEQ results to:
- Determine program effectiveness.
- Measure learning outcomes and impact
of campus environments (learning
communities, FIGS, etc.).
- Assess academic year initiatives
(first-year experience courses, senior
portfolio projects, etc.).
- Merge with and complement
institution-wide data for a richer
understanding of student development issues.
- Compile accreditation data.
- Examine efforts of academic affairs
and student affairs divisions.
- Assess division-wide programming and
- Assess student involvement in a
variety of campus initiatives.
In addition to providing valuable
information for the institution, students
completing the CSEQ benefit from reflection and
self-evaluation. Many students say completing
the questionnaire prompts them to recall the
range of activities in which they participated
during the year and the progress they made
toward important goals.
