Best Practices for Reporting and Using IPEDS Data to Improve Office Efficiencies
The Association for Institutional Research (AIR) and the Northeast Association for Institutional Research (NEAIR) are co-hosting a one-day IPEDS Workshop for data providers and users in conjunction with the NEAIR 43rd Annual Conference. Financial support for this workshop is provided by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).
The recently redesigned Best Practices for Reporting and Using IPEDS Data to Improve Office Efficiencies workshop provides intermediate-level Keyholder training. The first half of this workshop features best practices in IR, and technical efficiencies in data management through Excel (e.g., pivot tables, merging data, custom formulas, and filters) and in review and submission of IPEDS survey data. The second half of the workshop expands on use of IPEDS data for benchmarking to address key institutional questions and needs. This workshop is specifically designed for individuals who lead IPEDS data submissions at their institutions, and have done so for at least one full reporting cycle.
Participants should have experience with the “Use the Data” section of the NCES website, and a working knowledge of Excel (e.g., how to create basic formulas and sort data). This workshop will not review IPEDS survey component submission instructions or cover basic benchmarking concepts (though intermediate topics are addressed).
Note: Participants are required to bring a MAC or PC laptop with wireless capability and Microsoft Excel.
This workshop is limited to 45 participants and workshop seats are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Seat confirmations are delivered via email on a rolling basis approximately 3 business days after an online seat registration is submitted.
