Work with BCSSE Data
There are many great examples of how institutions are putting their BCSSE data to good use. Some of these examples are discussed in the book chapters "The Role of Precollege Data in Assessing and Understanding Student Engagement in College" by Cole, Kennedy, and Ben-Avie (2009) and "Using Longitudinal Data to Improve the Experiences and Engagement of First-Year Students" (Cole, & Korkmaz, 2010). Both of these book chapters are available in the Papers and Presentations section of this website.
Other sources for institutional examples are discussed in BCSSE Webinars (see Webinar archives to view these presentations), and at national and regional conferences around the country (See the papers and presentations section). Other resources are also located on the left side of this page including Using Your BCSSE Data, Search The Data, Request a Custom Report, and Sample Analyses & Syntax.
