Satisfaction-Priorities AssessmentsStrengthen the quality of student life and learning on your campus
Successful campuses continuously strive to improve the quality of the student experience. In order to do that, you need to know where to focus your efforts.
The Ruffalo Noel Levitz Satisfaction-Priorities Surveys help you pinpoint those challenges and priorities. They allow you to look at your institution inside and outside of the classroom, so you can analyze a wide spectrum of issues that affect the student experience. You'll see a clear picture of what you need to do now to improve student life, learning, and success.

What campuses say about these instruments
"We used the 2012 Spring SSI results over and over for our accreditation self-study. It was, in my opinion, the best money and time spent for an assessment tool/survey instrument. Between the tool itself and the guidance provided afterwards, I can't say enough about our relationship with Noel-Levitz."
Director of Institutional Research
Northeast Community College (NE)
"This is our first year using the Student Satisfaction Inventory and we are very pleased with the information and guidance received. Noel-Levitz made our transition from a previous survey provider almost seamless. We are looking forward to continuing to work with Noel-Levitz in the future."
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs

"Noel-Levitz will walk you through the process and provide a great deal of support as you make meaning of the information provided."
