Comparing Assessment Plan Data Across Cycles


Comparative Reporting in Plans

While Assessment Plans can only be connected to a single Reporting Year, it is possible to produce Comparative Reports that aggregate data from multiple Plans, allowing for up to 5 Reporting Years to be compared side-by-side.  

These reports will include:

  • An Overview displaying total counts of Organizations included the Plan, Outcome being Assessed, Measures that have been created, Conclusions drawn, and Actions being tracked. The Overview will also display a sum total of dollars required across all Budget Requests. Overview.png
  •  The total number of Organizations that have Not Started data entry, are In Progress, or have Submitted, per PlanPlan Progress.png
  • Alignment to the Institutional OutcomesILOs.png
  • Percentage of Outcomes that are Met/Not Met/Unspecified per Plan
  • Percentage of Measures that are Met/Not Met/Unspecified per Plan
  • Percentage of Measures that are Direct/Indirect/Unspecified per PlanStatus.png
  • Action Progress per PlanAction Status.png
  • Most Reported Action Type per Plan
