Institutional report

Participating universities receive an Institutional Report containing institution-specific results of all the surveys they choose to administer i.e. SASSE and LSSE. SASSE’s participation agreements prevent institution-specific results being made public, but a sample report is available for review. A breakdown of each of the report sections is provided below.

Overview of your institution’s survey administration

The LSSE-SASSE Comparison report shows responses from both students and lecturers at your institution who completed SASSE and LSSE. This report contains responses from lecturers who responded to the survey based on their experiences teaching either a first-year or senior module/subject or both.

The LSSE Frequencies Report is based on information from all lecturers at your institution who responded to the survey. This includes those who reported that they teach mostly first-year modules, mostly senior modules (second year and later) or reported that they teach an equal number of first-year and senior modules.

This section of the report provides an overview of the characteristics of your respondents. This data is not weighted.

The 2017 book, Engaging Students: Using Evidence to Promote Student Success includes a chapter on the LSSE. To access Chapter 4 ‘Building Academic Capacity through Student Engagementclick here. 

In 2018, Universities South Africa (USAf), in collaboration with the SASSE team published a three-part report series on ‘Understanding our Students’. The third report in particular used LSSE data to reflect on quality teaching and learning. Click here to access this report.
