Common Data Set

The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by the College Board, Peterson’s, and U.S. News & World Report. The combined goal of this collaboration is to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided to all involved in a student’s transition into higher education, as well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers.

Graduating Senior Survey

Each year since 1990, Keene State College has administered a survey to its graduating students. The Office of Student Affairs hosts a Commencement Fair each spring which brings together representatives from all of the services that students may need to work with to complete their graduation preparations. Students must complete the on-line Commencement Participation and Survey prior to being admitted to the Fair. The Graduating Student Survey was developed to provide students an opportunity to evaluate the College, and its programs and services, and to assess their learning achievements.



Admitted Student Survey

The Admitted Student Survey is administered by the Admissions office to all students that have been accepted by Keene State College. This survey is designed to identify competitor institutions and the reasons for students choices to attend or not attend KSC.


The National Survey of Student Engagement is a national survey which assesses the extent to which first-year and senior students engage in educational practices associated with high levels of learning and development.

NSSE survey questions include:

  • how much time students spend working and studying
  • how the students categorize their relationships with faculty and other students
  • student participation in class activities
