BYU-I SDO & NSSE: To Become

Connections

The tables that follow connect BYU-Idaho's Student Development Outcomes (SDO) to various questions from the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE).  This page presents connections between the "To Become" section of the BYU-Idaho SDO and the NSSE.

Please read through the tables and ask if the connections between the NSSE and the development outcomes seem reasonable and, more importantly, what the tables say about the engagement of our students in the learning process.  What steps toward improvement do the data suggest to you?
