Student Achievement

The Office of Academic Effectiveness is focused on measuring student learning and success of NSU students to design and improve their educational experiences. For more information on NSU student achievement as required by SACSCOC in the Principles of Accreditation: Foundations for Quality Enhancement (2018), section 8.1, see Student Achievement.

The Office of Institutional Assessment conducts and coordinates survey administration, data collection, analysis, and facilitates the dissemination of results to inform decision making and continuous quality improvement of programs and services. The indirect survey approach enables the University to assess student progress through the institution, student satisfaction with the University experience, the quality and efficacy of units and services, as well as the institutional environment and climate. University-wide assessment activities are the joint responsibilities of several offices, depending on what is being assessed.

The Office of Institutional Assessment administers the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE), and Graduating Senior Exit Survey on an annual basis.  The Office of Assessment also conducts survey for different units upon request.
