Gold in Them There Hills? Extracting and Using Data from Existing Sources
Yorke, M.
Tertiary Education and Management, v12 n3 p201-213 Sep 2006
Data residing in institutional and system-level record systems are often under-exploited as a resource for decision-making. Whilst the data might neither have the characteristics, nor meet the quality demanded, of formal research projects, their relative availability offers advantages to the policy-maker and practitioner. This article illustrates with a number of examples the potential of available data for informing policy and practice at different levels within an education system.
