Over the next several weeks, we will feature data that are freely and publicly available to you. This week, we provide a sample of interactive resources from UWM’s Office of Assessment and Institutional Research (OAIR) that contain a variety of data on students at the UWM main campus and branch campuses.
- Access to Success (A2S): Data on this SharePoint dashboard includes student demographics and student participation in high impact practices such as mentoring, tutoring, advising, learning communities, course re-design initiatives, undergraduate research.
- Historical Comparison of Enrollment Dashboard: This SharePoint dashboard shows historical enrollment information and can be filtered by numerous variables.
- New Freshmen Retention and Graduation: This SharePoint dashboard shows retention and graduation rates for up to six years, from initial enrollment of new freshmen.
- New Transfer Retention & Graduation: This SharePoint dashboard shows retention and graduation rates for up to six years from initial enrollment of new transfer students.
- Re-enrollment Dashboard: This SharePoint dashboard contains weekly re-enrollment information for students enrolled officially in the most recent fall or spring term and can be used to determine how many haven’t re-enrolled.
- Retention and Graduation Trends at the Main Campus: The dashboard shows trends in retention and graduation rates across multiple fall cohorts of new freshmen and new transfers at the main campus.
- Weekly Comparison of Enrollment Dashboard: This OBIEE dashboard compares weekly enrollment information from the current and previous years and can be filtered by numerous variables.
Another insight into UWM students’ success comes from IPEDS, which allows you to retrieve data on a single institution and to compare data across institutions, which can be useful if we want to compare UWM data to peer institutions such as Georgia State University or Wayne State University. IPEDS is a system of interrelated, annually conducted surveys collected by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), under the U.S. Department of Education. As an example of how IPEDS data can be used, check out the IPEDS Data Feedback Report for UWM.
