Undergraduate Reports

Reports in this section are divided into four categories. Please use the menu at the left to select the group you desire.

National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)

The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) has been conducted at Ryerson since 2005. Unlike surveys focused on students' satisfaction with services, NSSE focuses on student engagement by examining a wide range of activities in which students are involved. Topics include student-faculty interaction, campus environment, active and collaborative learning, and level of academic challenge.

Because of its distinctive focus on what students actually do, NSSE is a powerful tool for assessing a university's contribution to students' learning — it gives faculty, staff and students a variety of ways to think about the student experience. At many universities, NSSE has served as a centerpiece in sustained improvement efforts.

First Year Student Survey

The First-Year Student Survey, conducted under the auspices of the Canadian Undergraduate Survey Consortium, aims to collect information about the experience of undergraduate students in their first year of study. Questions focus on factors influencing students' decisions to attend university, their degree of success in making the transition from secondary school to university, and their satisfaction with services and the university experience.

The Canadian Undergraduate Survey Consortium is a group of approximately 30 universities across Canada that conducts student surveys across participating institutions. Ryerson has been a member of the Consortium since 1997.

Comprehensive Student Survey

The Comprehensive Student Survey involves undergraduates in all years of study and is conducted under the auspices of the Canadian Undergraduate Survey Consortium. The Consortium is a group of approximately 30 universities across Canada that conducts student surveys across participating institutions. Ryerson has been a member of the Consortium since 1997.

Questions focus on students' satisfaction with various aspects of the university experience including a range of services and the extent to which Ryerson has contributed to the development of specific skills.

Graduating Student Survey

The Graduating Student Survey is conducted among undergraduate students in their final year of study. It provides an opportunity for students to reflect on their years at Ryerson and provide feedback about their experiences. Questions focus on students' satisfaction with their academic program and the University as a whole, their assessment of Ryerson�s contribution to the development of various skills, as well as their plans for future education and employment.
