Meet the Office of University Effectiveness ...continued
Early Bird | August 15 2018 | By Lindsey Coulter
This branch of University Effectiveness deals with compliance data to ensure that the University continues to meet federal and state reporting guidelines. Institutional Research also participates with external partners in shared data-collection projects. These efforts require consistent adherence to fixed data definitions, so even common words such as “enrollment” can cause some head-scratching when compliance data are compared with operational data.
“State and federal reporting asks specific questions that rely on specific definitions, but Business Intelligence can answer more nuanced questions that may want to define key terms differently,” Harman said.
You can find Institutional Research’s compliance data online in the Data Book.
