Individual respondent engagement scores are the student's average responses to items within each grouping, after all items have been placed on a 60-point scale. These engagement indicators are a means of assessing what students are doing (their experiences) at the university – they are not opinion or satisfaction markers. The scores that are presented for MUN in the official NSSE report is a weighted mean of these student-level scores.
Explanations for each indicator can be found in the following report. This will also detail each of the questions used to make up the scale.
