In total, 35 higher education institutions participated in the 2009 AUSSE. This includes 30 from Australia and five from New Zealand – six more than in 2008 and ten more than in 2007. In addition, ten institutions participated in the Staff Survey of Student Engagement (SSES). Interpreting, analysing and acting on survey results are the most significant components of the AUSSE.

This institution report provides ideas for how institutions might use the data for quality enhancement and improvement. As with all data collections, it is important that AUSSE results are used in technically and educationally appropriate ways. The AUSSE is intended to provide a source of evidence for each institution’s conversations about engagement.
