IPEDS Workshop:


  • Title:   Beyond Compliance:  How to Use IPEDS Data to Examine Student and Institutional Success

  • Date/Time:  September 18, 2023  -  8:30am-4:30pm

  • This workshop is designed for individuals interested in utilizing IPEDS data to examine and measure student and institutional success. The first half of the workshop explores the five IPEDS surveys that contain academic performance metrics (Completions, Graduation Rates, 200% Graduation Rates, Fall Enrollment, and Outcome Measures).  Through group discussion, activities, and lectures, participants will learn what the measurements can—and cannot—tell us about student and institutional performance. The second half of the workshop will involve hands-on activities to work through a series of case studies based on real-life scenarios. Participants will identify the question being asked in each case study; determine the best metric(s) to use to answer the question; extract data using the IPEDS tools; perform analyses; and present the data to answer the question.  Participants will gain the knowledge needed to explore and answer questions at their institutions or organizations.

  • Note: Participants are required to bring a MAC or PC laptop with wireless capability and Microsoft Excel.

  • The workshops is limited to 45 participants and 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.
