Purpose of the SegoEd Survey

Share the Survey, Shape Your Learning: Get Involved for a Better Classroom Experience!

The SegoEd Student Engagement Survey represents a collaborative effort between Utah Valley University and Summit Venture Studio, led by Brittney Hayes, a proud alumna of the University of Utah. This project is born from a commitment to deepen our understanding of the academic experience, seen through the eyes of those who matter most – the students.

At the heart of this initiative lies a simple yet powerful objective: to transform the way classroom engagement is perceived and enhanced. We recognize that the key to a more enriching educational journey lies in listening to the students themselves. By capturing their honest feedback and experiences, we aim to uncover the true essence of what makes a classroom environment not just educational, but also engaging and inspiring.

SegoEd at UVU

The research at UVU delved into the impact of OEL pillar enrollments on students' persistence and the evaluation of the quality of High-Impact Practices (HIPs).
Findings:
  • Students’ Persistence: The intensity of participation in OEL pillars significantly predicts students’ persistence.
    • Every additional OEL pillar increases persistence odds by 47%.
    • Critical participation value for persistence to the next semester is involvement in four OEL pillars.
    • Two combinations notably impacted persistence:
      • Service-learning combined with global/intercultural, which raised persistence odds by 63%.
      • Service-learning paired with research, escalating odds by 95%

 

This supported earlier research indicating the significant impact of service-learning on student outcomes.

Quality Evaluation of HIPs at UVU:
  • Quality varies across HIPs, engaged experiences, and course sections.
  • UVU is developing its ‘Five Pillars of Student Engagement’ to standardize the quality of student engagement.
    • Faculty are in charge of curriculum design.
    • OEL handles engagement measurement and assessment.
    • OTL (Office of Teaching and Learning) addresses any identified gaps in curriculum design or teaching methods.
  • The goal is uniformity in student engagement levels across different course sections.
  • UVU’s effectiveness measures cover various aspects, including academic service-learning courses, internships’ professionalism, and global competency from study abroad courses.

Intercultural Competency Assessment:
  • Using the Assessment of Intercultural Competency (AIC) tool, UVU tracks global/intercultural courses’ efficacy.
  • Intercultural Competency covers skills, attitude, awareness, and knowledge.
  • Data revealed intercultural competency improvement rates of 19% and 27% in Spring and Fall 2018, respectively, with a four-semester average of 23%.
SegoEd Implementation:
  • UVU institutionalized SEGO under its Office of Engaged Learning.
  • The SEGO Dashboard, launching with a comprehensive survey, aims to assess and elevate student engagement and maintain HIPs’ quality.
  • This tool will aid decision-making at multiple institutional levels, pushing for constant improvement based on feedback.
