The questionnaire focuses on five categories: (1) participation in dozens of educationally purposeful activities, (2) institutional requirements and the challenging nature of coursework, (3) perceptions of the college environment, (4) estimates of educational and personal growth since starting college, and (5) background and demographic information.

The goal of the CLA+ assessment is to measure critical thinking, analytic reasoning, problem solving, and written communication skills of students. It is not to measure changes in individual students, but rather to learn more about programmatic features that correlate with “institutional effects” associated with larger than expected gains in students’ analytical reasoning, critical thinking, and writing skills.
The National Study of Learning Voting and Engagement (NSLVE) offers colleges and universities an opportunity to learn their student registration and voting rates and, for interested campuses, a closer examination of their campus climate for political learning and engagement and correlations between specific student learning experiences and voting.
The MISO Survey is a web-based quantitative survey designed to measure how faculty, students, and staff view library and computing services in higher education.
