The NSSE is conducted by Indiana University for hundreds of campuses across the country, and is coordinated on the UW–Madison campus by the Office of Academic Planning and Institutional Research (APIR). APIR plans to provide major-specific summaries and data that can be used to support assessment activities, program reviews, and other evaluative practices. But to do so, the office will need enough student survey responses to make this information viable and available to campus departments. Freshmen (including all first-year students) and seniors are encouraged to complete the survey at. https://my.wisc.edu/go/nsse. If the student is eligible to complete the survey it will take them directly to the survey after they have logged in to ...
