Student Faculty Interaction Benchmark 2011

NSSE 2011 Benchmark Graph Images


Students learn firsthand how experts think about and solve practical problems by interacting with faculty members inside and outside the classroom.  As a result, their teachers become role models, mentors, and guides for continuous, life-long learning.

(Graph shows benchmark scores.)

NSSE Questions Used to Calculate the Benchmark Score:

  • Discussed grades or assignments with an instructor
