Common Time presentation about College Data Dashboards is posted

If you missed the Common Time presentation by Cody Loew, Director of Institutional Research & Effectiveness, on Sep. 17, a video recording of the session is available at https://cincinnatistate.adobeconnect.com/p7tebrtgqczx.

The presentation on "Program Review Reports, Data, and Tools" included a demonstration of new data dashboards that are available using Tableau Reader software.

The Tableau dashboards display continuously-updated data about College enrollment, student demographic groups, student success metrics, and academic program metrics.

Viewers can "mine data" in a variety of ways to examine trends, seek information about a specific division or program, and more.

Instructions for viewing the Tableau dashboards-- including how to download needed software-- are available in the "Facts and Figures" section of the College intranet. (Select Institutional Research Reports > Dashboards.)

The video recording from Monday's presentation includes several "bookmarks" that allow you to jump to a specific section of the recording by clicking a link. 

After you open the video, you may need to click the arrow icon (as seen in the top line of the image at right) to expand the full list of bookmarks.

The video recordings for most Common Time sessions are posted on the College intranet:

  • Go to the "How the College Works" intranet area
  • Select the "Academics" link
  • Select the "Common Time Recordings" folder
