Pai, Wendell; Moschos, Marina; Detlev, Angela; Robinson, Ophelia; Lanneau, Sumi
New Directions for Institutional Research, n139 p5-25 Fall 2008
This chapter describes the development of a state-level student tracking system that enables the state and institutions to follow various cohort types of students across institutional boundaries. The system was developed by the Policy Research and Data Warehousing section of the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV). SCHEV is the coordinating body for higher education in Virginia, and the Policy Research and Data Warehousing section (SCHEV Research) is responsible for a wide range of institutional research activities in support of the council's mission. This chapter discusses issues related to data integrity and design, data elements, reports development, potential users, and implications for policy. The online tool presents aggregate reports of student success to inform policymakers at all levels. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
