Faculty Survey (CCFSSE) Reports

CCFSSE 2016 Cohort Overview

The Community College Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (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.

CCFSSE reports enable participating institutions to view faculty perceptions of student engagement alongside student responses. However, the side-by-side tables, while illustrative, are not entirely equivalent: That is, CCSSE asks students to report about their experiences across the period of the current academic year, while faculty are asked to report their perceptions of their students' engagement experiences in a specific selected course.

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.

The 2016 CCFSSE Cohort includes 260 institutions from 38 states, plus Guam and Micronesia. The CCFSSE was completed by 31,550 faculty members across the 2014, 2015, and 2016 administrations.1

1For returning participants, the college's most recent year of CCFSSE participation is included in data analyses. For example, if a college participated in 2014 and 2016, only the 2016 data are included in the three-year cohort.
