NSSE in Action

NSSE and FSSE results for the Experiences with Writing topical module were key in Harvey Mudd’s assessment of a curriculum revision requiring participation in a first-year introductory course in academic writing. Faculty used the results in developing strategies to encourage reflection, foster the transfer of skills, and increase the use of writing skills across disciplines. Details in NSSE Annual Results 2015.
