NSSE 2006 - Diversity Related Items
There are six diversity-related items on the 2006 NSSE. Five of these were also on NSSE when CU-Boulder previously participated, in 2002. A new item, concerning trying to better understand someone else's view by imagining things from his or her perspective, was added to NSSE in 2005.
CU-Boulder freshman and senior means on five of the diversity-related items are shown in a separate table.1 The table also shows means of the 2006 AAU peer group on each item. Note that AAU peer group comparisons for 2002 are not shown. The reason for this is that the peer groups differ considerably in their composition; only one AAU public institution, other than CU-Boulder, administered NSSE in both 2002 and 2006. A blue line connecting two means in the table indicates that there is a noticeable difference between them. We have used effect sizes to determine whether a difference is noticeable.
The results in the table illustrate several points:
1Note that the CU-Boulder diversity scale contains six diversity-related items, rather than five, and includes an item about conversing with others with different religious beliefs, political opinions, or personal values.
