Standardized Assessment Measures at Shepherd University

Evidence of Student Learning

In Spring 2019, Shepherd University administered the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) to First-Year and Senior Students.  The University will administer the NSSE again in 2022.  A summary of our 2019 results are as follows:

High Impact Practice Participation

The figures below are from the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) and display the percentage of Shepherd University students who participated in High Impact Practices (HIPs) in 2019.  Both figures include participation in service-learning, a learning community, and guided research with faculty mentors.  The senior figure also includes participation in an internship or field experience, study abroad, and a culminating senior experience. Our seniors participate in more HIPs than seniors at many of our peer institutions.

The figures below display the percentage of students who participated in High-Impact Practices. both figures included participation in service learning, a learning community, and a research with faculty. the senior figure also includes participation in an internship or field experience, study abroad, and culminating senior experience. The first segment in each participated in at least two HIPs, and the full bar (both colors) represents the percentage who participated in at least one.
