2013 Innovation of the Year Project Detail.


Central Piedmont Community College

Jumpstart for Institutional Research

Terri Manning, Bobbie Frye, Paul Earls, Jason Temples, and Catherine Kurilla

Innovation Type:
Research, Assessment and Accountability

Description:
The office of institutional research at CPCC developed a process for replicating their data extraction and analysis process to increase data capacity in college IR offices across the country. The method is low cost, highly efficient, and can be continued from year to year with only the cost of SAS site license renewal. It involves colleges uploading one term’s data to a cloud, mapping the college’s data, making a site visit to the college, creating SAS datasets, and installing the data mart file structure. All colleges that participate will have a common dataset and all programs written for any of them (including CPCC) will work for all of them. Colleges that implement the process will dramatically increase the capacity of their IR offices and will be able to support the culture of evidence at their respective colleges. Staff in CPCC’s IR department approached several state community college systems and national initiatives about funding the adoption of CPCC’s IR process.

How this project is being recognized:
recognition within CPCC through Innovation of the Year award in fall 2013; validation through Achieving the Dream 2012 Pilot.
