Postsecondary Data GPS: A Guidebook for Navigating Data to Promote Student Success

Institute for Higher Education Policy / July 2020

IHEP has developed this Metrics Framework Guidebook as a free resource for institutions who are eager to begin using their data in truly meaningful ways. Designed for use by non-statisticians and statisticians alike, the Guidebook is intended to serve as an easy-to-access tool for a variety of offices across campus to quickly transform aggregate data into useful visualizations that uncover trends and issues in need of further exploration and to inform institutional change efforts. Ultimately, this tool should help institutions build a culture of data-informed inquiry to increase student success.
