Quick Guide to Resources for Data-Informed Decision Making at IUPUI
Provides data on primary areas of scholarly achievement represented in research-intensive programs. Campus leaders can use data and tools to analyze programs, departments and schools in order to make strategic decisions, benchmark scholarly research activity and support program review. Also may be useful for identifying external reviewers and nominating faculty for awards.
Note: Chairs and Deans must complete a series of training modules to gain full access to database.
Unlimited access to original research, market intelligence, customized benchmarking, and forecasting tools, implementation toolkits, and other resources related to a range of topics (e.g., student success, faculty affairs, research, globalization)
Open to all faculty and staff at IUPUI. Must register and create account in order to gain full access to research briefs.
Enables faculty to more efficiently report on their annual activities, while enabling administrators to organize, manage, and report on faculty activities.
Provides a wide range of static presentations and reports as well as interactive “student analytic reports” and dashboards that can help to inform campus leaders’ decisions.
Provides interactive and visual information regarding various metrics aligned with the IUPUI Campus Strategic Plan.
Provides enrollment reports for campus leaders to gauge whether numbers of seats in classes (or numbers of sections of courses offered) might be adjusted to meet student demand. Reports are updated daily in some cases. Snapshots for key dates (first day, census, corrected grades) are also available.
Tracks the status of IUPUI admissions and enrollment for upcoming semesters. Reports are updated each week during active admissions and registration cycles to show how the campus and each school is progressing relative to prior years at the same point in time.
Produces official university reports on admissions, enrollment, retention, graduation rates, degree completions, financial aid, IPEDS, and National Student Clearinghouse for Indiana University and all its campuses
Institutional Research and Decision Support (IRDS) administers online course evaluations (also known as Online Course Questionnaires or OCQ) in partnership with the colleges and schools at IUPUI. Responses from course evaluations give students a forum to provide feedback about their courses. By completing online course questionnaires, students provide useful information to improve courses and overall instruction at IUPUI. In that context, student feedback helps instructors to make improvements in the teaching and learning process, thereby enhancing the learning experience for students. When course questionnaires are administered across a department/school, it allows for robust analysis and reporting that can help faculty to improve course-level pedagogy and program-level curriculum.
