Introduction

In the spring of 2010, Tarrant County College District (TCCD) joined the 2008-2010 Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) cohort, which includes hundreds of community colleges in the nation and abroad. Throughout the District, 1397 randomly selected students participated in the survey on student engagement. Research at a number of community colleges has identified a number of specific institutional practices and student behaviors as the most powerful contributors to effective teaching, student learning, retention and persistence. CCSSE provides information related to those effective practices to assist institutions in improving student achievement.

Benchmarks

The CCSSE data is broken into five benchmark categories as follows:

  • Support for Learners
  • Student Effort
  • Active and Collaborative Learning
  • Student Faculty Interaction
  • Academic Challenge
