Fine Tune Your Faculty Evaluations: How to Mine Granular Data with the Campus Labs Response Export for More Detailed Analysis of Student Surveys

Can a mean score tell the full story of the class experience? As student populations diversify, can ratings from international students be merged with those from scholarship athletes? Is it informative to combine the scores of a 20-year-old and 50-year-old student? With the raw data export, we can take a granular look at how different demographics rate their classes and instructors. In one deep dive, we discovered that age does matter, but not always how you might think.

Project CEO: The Potential Value of Beyond-the-Classroom Experiences for Developing Career Competencies

With limited resources for on-the-job training, today’s employers often prefer college graduates who are “job ready” and can demonstrate competency-based skills that compliment knowledge in a specific academic area. To meet this expectation, as well as to justify the rising costs of higher education, colleges and universities are under increasing pressure to prove they can adequately prepare their students for viable careers.

Socially Just Assessment: Moving Higher Education Forward Toward Equity Through Assessment

Assessment can often be viewed and conducted as an objective, data-driven process for accountability and improvement, without a lot of examination of the philosophical underpinnings of the assessment methods or the cultural context in which assessment is being conducted.
