Teaching Film Custodians abridged classroom version of a Cavalcade of America television series episode, "Mightier Than The Sword" (season 1, episode 13) which originally aired on March 18th, 1953 on NBC-TV. This pre-Revolutionary War drama focuses on the 1734 court case in which Royal Governor William Cosby of New York charged John Peter Zenger with libel because he printed the truth about corruption in Cosby's administration. The outcome of this trial established the principle of freedom of the press. The film shows Cosby arresting Zenger and disbarring James Alexander, Zenger's lawyer, on trumped-up charges. Travelling to Philadelphia, Alexander persuades Alexander Hamilton, one of the oldest and most respected attorneys in all the provinces, to take Zenger's case. Hamilton convinces the jury that publishing the truth is not libelous, resulting in Zenger's acquittal and establishing a precedent in American jurisprudence which would be adopted as a principle of law in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution 57 years later when the Bill of Rights was ratified in 1791.

What constitutes a meaningful difference in your NSSE results? With large samples it is common for very small differences to be statistically significant. That's why effect sizes, which provide a measure of "practical" significance, are so important. Based on a recent analysis of statistical comparisons of Engagement Indicators and High-Impact Practices, we have derived new recommendations for interpreting small, medium, and large effect sizes. In this webinar, we will explain our recommendations and invite participants to consider their use with their NSSE results.
Presenters provide an in-depth preview of NSSE 2013 that includes item-by-item comparisons and information on the transition from NSSE Benchmarks to the new Engagement Indicators, offering participants an opportunity to provide input on new data reports.
The 30-minute webinar provides a quick review of some literature related to first-year experiences, an introduction to the module items, an in-depth look at aggregate findings, and suggestions for using results on your campus. For example, ideas for developing structured peer support, may arise from results showing that first-year students are most likely to seek help with coursework from friends or other students. We also highlight the importance of disaggregating data by various population, by highlighting some differences between female and male students.
Do you have data from the new Senior Transitions Topical Module? Interested in administering these items in the future? NSSE Analysts Angie Miller and Amber Dumford offer some insights on this popular 2015 module during this pre-recorded webinar. They provide a background on the rationale and development of the module, an in-depth look at the content, and highlight some intriguing findings from the aggregate data. Several suggestions for looking at data on your own campus are included as well, to help you get the most from customizing your NSSE participation with this valuable Topical Module.

The year 2013 marks an important milestone for the National Survey of Student Engagement, with the first substantial update to the survey since its inaugural administration in 2000. In this discussion session, participants learned about survey updates, including changes to survey items and benchmarks along with issues related to transitioning to the new survey (e.g., longitudinal comparisons), and, most important, were invited to give feedback on new reports and resources.
This webinar highlights how CIC member institutions can make the most of their updated NSSE results; considers ways to use campus results to accentuate institutional distinctiveness, explore retention, and feature accreditation self-studies; and explores member questions about NSSE reports and online tools for additional report creation.
Educational and institutional research that relies on survey methodology is often criticized for a lack of psychometric evidence to support use of the instrument. NSSE research analysts have developed a new framework for collecting and presenting evidence for reliability, validity, and reduction of bias. Various methods and results that demonstrate psychometric strengths and identify areas of improvement for NSSE will be presented.

Presentation at Open Repositories 2015 (OR2015), the 10th International Conference on Open Repositories, Indianapolis, Indiana, in session P2A: Integrating with External Systems: the use case of ORCID.
Jillian Kinzie presents a "quick take," session (45 min or less!) focused on using NSSE results at the department and program level. Approaches to engaging departments in NSSE such as via the new Major Field, reports, use of "scalelets," a focus on department pedagogical concerns, and several successful department-level examples, will help generate ideas for involving your faculty in assessment and maximizing your use of NSSE results.
Nine out of ten institutions administer NSSE on a regular cycle such as every one, two, or three years. The 2018 administration marks the sixth year of the updated version of NSSE, which means that almost all institutions have multiple years of results from the updated NSSE. Of course, institutions eagerly use their multi-year data to enrich analyses and to answer additional questions about the quality of their student learning experiences. The purpose of this webinar is to discuss some of the best approaches to examining changes and trends in engagement patterns, and evaluating specific campus initiatives.
