  • Ken Smith

The Association of University Summer Sessions (AUSS), the North American Association of Summer Sessions (NAASS), the North Central Conference on Summer Schools (NCCSS), and the Western Association of Summer Session Administrators (WASSA), using the 2014 Joint Statistical Survey and Report (JSR), worked together to gather and report data for the purpose of improving summer session programming. The 33-item survey instrument queried members of the above associations regarding various aspects of summer session from an institutional control perspective; fixed elements (outside the administrators’ direct control) and flexible elements (potentially within the control of administrators) were also explored. Key findings, data generated, and future plans for the 2014 survey are described.
