NASPA-Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, the Association for Institutional Research (AIR), and EDUCAUSE recently conducted a landscape analysis to examine how institutional research, student affairs, and information technology professionals are working together to support students. The paper, entitled Institutions’ Use of Data and Analytics for Student Success identified “clear silos of functions among IR, IT, and student affairs professionals, which presents an opportunity for institutions to expand their sharing of information across divisions.”
In traditional reporting models, static reports and spreadsheets are often outdated or fall short of providing the right information for the right people. Siloed data, siloed departments, outdated reporting… how can an institution effectively work together to support students?
In this on-demand video we discuss some best practices for reporting and strategies for easily preparing and sharing information across the institution. The presentation includes a demonstration of Bridge, the collaboration and data exploration platform from Rapid Insight, which allows anyone, with any skillset, to make data-informed decisions.
