* Each benchmark is an index of responses to several NSSE questions. Because NSSE questions have different response
sets, each question’s response set was rescaled from zero to 100, and students’ rescaled responses were then averaged.
Thus a benchmark score of zero would mean that every student chose the lowest response option for every item, and 100
would mean every student chose the highest response to every item. Although benchmarks are reported on a 0-100 scale,
they are not percentages.
