MJC Student Experience Survey 2017

During April and May 2017, Modesto Junior College conducted the 2017 MJC Student Experience Survey. This survey was administered online to all Spring 2017 enrolled students at the College. A range of questions enabled students to provide qualitative and quantitative feedback about their experiences as students at MJC.

CCSSE Student Surveys at MJC, 2006-2017

The Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) is a nationwide survey of community college students, in collaboration with the Community College Leadership Program at the University of Texas at Austin. CCSSE has been conducted at MJC every 2 years since 2006. Read more about the background of the CCSSE here.

Results from the CCSSE have been utilized for:

  1. Assessment of core indicators of institutional effectiveness
  2. Measurement of student engagement as a reflection of institutional quality
  3. Identification of areas of needed institutional improvement
  4. Application of an equity lens to determine if there are gaps between student groups.
