CCSSE is used to collect data about student engagement on our campus, and the data is then used to improve student learning and persistence. Research shows that the more actively engaged students are - with college faculty and staff, with other students, and with the subject matter they study - the more likely they are to learn, to stick with their studies, and to attain their academic goals. This survey is administered every other year at CCD in the spring term. Results from CCD are compared with results from other participating institutions across the country.
CCSSE developed SENSE, the Survey of Entering Student Engagement, specifically to help colleges address the critical early weeks of students’ college experience. Administered within the fourth and fifth weeks of the fall academic term, this survey focuses on institutional practices and student behaviors in the earliest weeks of college. Survey data will be collected and analyzed to further supporting our institution’s efforts to understand the critical early student experience and to improve practices in ways that will increase student success in the first college year. CCD participated in the pilot year (2007) of SENSE and plans to administer the survey again in 2010-2011.
Each year a survey is sent to our prior year's graduates to find out about their after-college educational and employment experiences. Data from this survey are reported to Colorado Community College System office and fulfill the requirements for Perkins data collection and reporting. Results are reviewed by college administration to search for ways to make CCD a better place for students to learn, grow, and fulfill their dreams.
In spring 2008, the Colorado Community College System surveyed students regarding their experience at our colleges. This report shares the responses of students from
