Institutional report


Participating universities and colleges receive an Institutional Report containing institution-specific results of all the surveys they chose to administer i.e. SASSE, LSSE, and BUSSE. Authorised persons from participating institutions can view their results via the password-protected institution interface.
SASSE’s participation agreements prevent institution-specific results being made public, but a sample report is available for review.

Psychometric portfolio


Using factor analysis, scales were derived from multiple administrations of the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE). The LSSE is an adaptation of the FSSE in the South African context. The reliabilities were calculated using data from the 2010 LSSE administration. Due to differences in item wording, response options, and component items, comparison of LSSE scale scores and scale or benchmark scores from SASSE is not recommended for assessment or research purposes. The psychometric portfolio will be updated after LSSE 2013 administration.

Summary tables
