The workshop includes presentations, discussions, exercises, and demonstrations using IPEDS data tools and resources.

IPEDS Data and Benchmarking: Supporting Decision Making and Institutional Effectiveness

This workshop introduces the fundamentals of benchmarking as a measure of institutional effectiveness. It is designed for individuals with little to no experience in benchmarking studies. Participants use data from the IPEDS Surveys, Data Feedback Reports, and the “Use of Data” section of the NCES website to learn about the types of comparison groups that can be constructed. Exercises demonstrate establishment of key performance indicators (KPIs) and identification of variables to refine comparison groups.
