National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE): Since 2000, the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) has collected data on thousands of students each year
from hundreds of four-year colleges and universities across the United States. The purpose of the survey is to gain insight into how undergraduates spend their
time while attending college and what they gain from their undergraduate education. NSSE was originally an initiative of the Pew Charitable Trusts designed to
collect national data about the quality of undergraduate education. Survey administration is coordinated by the Indiana University Center for Postsecondary Research.
Uses of NSSE results include, but are not limited to, informing strategic planning and policy decisions, providing information to prospective students, and supporting
accreditation activities.Cleveland State University participated in NSSE in 2002, 2006, and 2009.

Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA): The Collegiate Learning Assessment provides a means for measuring an institution's contribution to the development of key higher order competencies,
including the effects of changes to curriculum and pedagogy.  To gauge summative performance authentically, the CLA presents realistic problems that require students to analyze complex materials
and determine the relevance to the task and credibility.  Students' written responses to the tasks are evaluated to assess their abilities to think critically, reason analytically, solve problems and communicate clearly and cogently.  
Scores are aggregated to the institutional level to provide a signal to the institution about how their students as a whole are performing.
