ALUMNI SURVEYS

Working in collaboration with the Office of Alumni Engagement and Career Services, the Office of Assessment and Accreditation Support developed the Alumni Outcomes Survey to assess undergraduate student success from the perspective of employment and attainment of educational objectives. This survey samples alumni two and five years post-graduation. 

2016-2017

The Alumni Outcomes Survey replaces the previous Undergraduate Alumni Survey, distributed in 2007 and 2012. This survey sampled alumni two to ten years post-graduation.

GRADUATING STUDENT SURVEYS

The Graduating Student Survey is the University of San Francisco's exit survey taken by students before they graduate. The survey is designed to capture student perceptions of their educational experience. The survey asks students about the preparation they received in a variety of knowledge and skills, their values, ideas, and perspectives relative to differences of people who are different from themselves and co-curricular contributions to their experience. The Graduating Student Survey integrates the perspective of both undergraduate and graduate students. This survey replaces both the Undergraduate Graduating Student Survey and the Graduate Student Graduating Student Survey. 

2016-2017

The Undergraduate Graduating Student Survey was administered from 2003 to 2015 to seniors as they completed their Baccalaureate degree. It was replaced by the Graduating Student Survey in 2016 - 2017.

NATIONAL SURVEYS

The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) is a survey of first year and senior students about the characteristics and quality of their undergraduate education. While NSSE does not directly assess student learning, the survey does reflect self-reported behaviors associated with desired outcomes of an undergraduate education. Beginning in 2018, USF opted to offer NSSE every other year. The next administration will be in the 2019-2020 academic year.

All reports prepared by NSSE, unless otherwise noted.
