The Office of Institutional Effectiveness conducts campus assessments throughout the academic year. These assessments provide information about student satisfaction, the student experience, and engagement. Summaries of those reports are provided in the reports on this page.
The Office of Institutional Effectiveness (OIE) was asked by the Faculty Senate Improvement of Writing Committee to assist in the development, administration and analysis of survey data regarding writing across the curriculum at Indiana University Southeast. More information regarding the committee and survey administration can be found in that committee's end-of-year report to the Faculty Senate.
The Indiana University Southeast Alumni Survey was created in the Spring 2012 Semester to obtain data necessary for the Office of Effectiveness (OIE), the Office of Development, and the Career Development Center. Information is collected pertaining to employment, graduate education, preparation for after college, perception of IU Southeast, satisfaction with the college experience, and updated contact information. Results are sent to various campus constituents to drive decision-making and answer external data requests. IU Southeast graduates are surveyed at the following times: 6 months after graduation, 1 year after graduation, 3 years after graduation and 5 years after graduation. The 2012 administration included a sample of graduates from as far back as 1977.

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness created a survey to gauge how the construction and subsequent tolling of a new bridge opening in 2017 to connect the east end of Louisville with Southern Indiana will impact our students, faculty and staff. The instrument measures the impact of tolling and solicits strategies to help support our campus constituents during the tolling period. Results are being shared with the campus community and with various external stakeholders.
Part of the Academic Advising Assessment Plan, this report is comprised of a pair of surveys. The first survey is sent to all enrolled undergraduate students and is designed to measure student satisfaction with academic advising. The second survey is sent to professional advisors and faculty advisors, who are asked to perceive the satisfaction of their “average” advisee. The goal is to match advisor perception with student perception to identify discrepancies that can stimulate changes in advising attitudes and behaviors. In addition, advisors are asked their satisfaction with institutional and staff support for their jobs. Student and advisor comments are also included.
This survey is administered, on an ongoing basis, to all graduating students when they apply for graduation. Students are asked about their experiences at IU Southeast, including courses, faculty, staff, processes, and campus programming. The reports below provide summaries of data across multiple years, including growth comparisons through the final year of the report.
This survey is administered every other year to a sample of undergraduate and graduate students in randomly selected courses. In 2013, the survey was substantially shortened and altered to focus on current campus initiatives. Prior to 2013, students were asked about their experiences at IU Southeast, including courses, faculty, staff, processes, and campus programming. The reports below provide summaries of data across multiple years, including growth comparisons where available.
This survey was first administered in Fall 2013 to all undergraduates at IU Southeast. The survey’s focus, designed by the SGA, is to collect data on current students to help drive SGA decision-making over the next year. Students were asked their thoughts on a variety of topics including: instructor use of Oncourse, student goals, preferred communication methods, course offering preferences, food court satisfaction, and IU Southeast athletics.
This survey is administered on an ongoing basis to new, incoming students during placement testing and post-admission to the institution. Students are asked about their academic interests and needs, demographics, employment and college payment plans, co-curricular interests, college choice and self-rated abilities. In addition, the ESS First Choice Report is a condensed version of the ESS that is made available to a variety of entities including the Office of Admissions, University Communications and Marketing, and Enrollment Management.
The Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) faculty survey was first administered in 2011 and can be administered every 3 years with approved funding. The highlight report below provides a snapshot of the IU Southeast faculty experience from the HERI 2011 administration. Additionally, during preparations for the accreditation visit from the Higher Learning Commission, faculty were surveyed about their perceptions of the institution, assessment, service, and general education. These data were considerably helpful in both preparing for the accreditation visit and informing the administration about faculty concerns. Since that time, the Academic Assessment Committee has collaborated with OIE to establish a routine evaluation of the faculty. The 2008 results are also below.
In an effort to identify areas of success and concern related to our campus climate, the Diversity Committee worked with OIE to develop and implement IU Southeast’s first climate survey in Fall 2011. Faculty, staff, and students were asked questions about their experiences and perceptions related to diversity on our campus. The survey will be administered every 3 years from that point forward. The reports below provide summaries of all responses from faculty, staff, and students.
