Welcome to the NSSE Report Builder
You choose the group. We'll show you the results.
The NSSE Report Builder is a public, interactive tool that instantly generates reports of your choosing. The tool draws from a secure database of responses from the two most recent years of NSSE, and can be queried using any combination of student and institutional characteristics. You can choose to generate tables of Benchmark statistics or individual item frequencies.
The following pages will guide you through five easy steps to filter the data and produce results tables according to your selections:
Step 1: SELECT REPORT VARIABLES
Choose whether you want Benchmark statistics or individual item frequencies in your report.
Step 2: SELECT A GROUPING VARIABLE
Choose a category variable that will define separate groups for your report (e.g., enrollment size, gender, major field, race/ethnicity).
Step 3: SELECT INSTITUTIONS
Select the type of institution you want included in the report
(e.g., region, selectivity, enrollment size).
Step 4: SELECT STUDENTS
First, choose whether you want results for first-year students or seniors,
and then select the type of student to include in the report
(e.g., gender, class, first-generation).
Step 5: RUN THE REPORT
Review your selections and run the report.
Step 1: Select Report Variables > >
This is the public version. A version for users at participating institutions can be accessed by obtaining a secure identifier through the NSSE Institution Interface.
