January 2013 5 This presentation will describe: 1)Where we were… 2)Where we are.. 3)Where we will go…
January 2013 6 Two-to-three weeks to complete a data request Discussions became stale Arguments over the data definitions New questions once data is received take another two-to- three weeks to get answered
January 2013 7 SPC exemplified the ‘data-rich, information- poor’ institution. Staff need timely information for decisions to maximize student success. SPC needed to leverage data from across the College by linking multiple data systems and elements in one reporting interface.
January 2013 8 SPC needed: –timely, relevant, and valid information at the college, campus, and program levels, –in an easy-to-interpret format to support evidence-based decision-making, –and drive performance improvement.
January 2013 9 Step 1: Acknowledge that data in its purest sense is not very useful. Step 2: Design a tool that defines, aggregates, and organizes the data into useful and relevant information for the stakeholders. Step 3: Provide end-user training to assist them in correctly interpreting and using information properly. Step 4: Consistently remind all end-users that data and information can be powerful, but it is only the start of the conversation.
January 2013 10 Allows college employees the ability to quickly access information required to make decisions to improve student success. Designed to provide standardized information to end- users and key stakeholders with the ability to look at data measures through multiple views. Measures can be rolled up and viewed at the aggregate institutional level or an end-user can ‘drill- down’ and view the same data measures at the campus or program level.
