Strategic Plan Data Mining 101
What might prove useful resources to (re)visit as Carroll begins a Strategic Planning Process? Payscale.com’s recent release College/University ROI data base (see below) reminded me of the value of being aware of such resources and of the importance of understanding their value, their assumptions, their limitations, and their potential uses and misuses. Below are a few of my favorite data resources. What have I missed?
- Payscale.com’s recent release of 2017 College/University ROI data base
- CollegeScoreCard (click on link and try it) wonderfully introduces an important trend toward TRUE TRANSPARENCY in data sharing and a very useful interactive data base for comparing schools
- the UW Accountability Dashboard similarly exemplifies this healthy trend.
- College Results Online is such a gem in the rough.
