Enrolled Student Survey

The COFHE Enrolled Student Survey (ESS) is primarily focused on measuring student engagement, including day-to-day student activities, modes of student-student and student-faculty interactions, student use of institutional resources, and related environmental factors. The survey also includes a set of learning self-evaluations and the most central student satisfaction measures from the Senior Survey. Faculty-student relationships, advising, and academic help are measured. The survey is administered to all arts and sciences and engineering undergraduates who are enrolled in the spring term of odd years.
