Upcoming Development Opportunities

 

Finding, Retrieving, and Using KU’s Institutional Data to Help your Program Thrive

Presented by Dr. Paul Trana, Research Analyst, KU Edwards Center for Faculty & Academic Administration

Tuesday, February 18, 2020, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm - BEST 220 & ZOOM

The University of Kansas collects, stores, and reports data in many ways, especially in the Student Administrative Reporting Data System (SARDS).  For summary data on students and programs, Tableau is regularly used to view and analyze data.  For more detailed and specific data requests, SAS and DEMIS are used to pull or query relevant data.  Using previous data requests as examples, Paul will describe the data available in each of these programs to help you better understand what institutional data is available, how it might be retrieved, and how to best use it to support your academic program.  Q & A will be provided, as well as practice exercises showing how programs have had their data needs fulfilled in the past.
