As the higher education realm becomes increasingly competitive, institutions rely on their admissions teams to collect data, analyze it, and use if to make strategic decisions. But with so much data available across so many different sources—and with so many different people needing data for different purposes—creating and managing a reporting strategy can prove daunting.

In this course, we’ll use a combination of group discussions, demonstrations, WebAdMIT activities, Excel activities, and overviews of industry best practices to explore practical approaches to creating a data reporting strategy that supports your institution’s needs.

Upon successful completion of the course, you will earn 0.6 Continuing Education Units (CEUs). You must attend all four sessions to receive CEU credit.

What are the learning objectives?

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to develop a reporting strategy that supports your organization’s goals. This strategy includes:

  • Defining key goals.
  • Building a stakeholder matrix.
  • Auditing existing data sources.
  • Utilizing WebAdMIT’s Report Manager, Export Manager, and PDF Manager functions.
  • Strategically capturing useful applicant data using a Centralized Application Service (CAS).
  • Analyzing and interpreting data using key Excel skills and data analysis best practices.
  • Presenting and delivering data in the most appropriate manner(s).

What do I need to know to participate?

This session is geared toward a broad range of individuals who need to manage admissions-related data for tactical and strategic purposes (this might include admissions coordinators, directors, etc.). No prerequisite data reporting knowledge is necessary, but attendees should have an on-the-job level of responsibility that includes data management and/or reporting. A basic, working knowledge of Excel is required so you can follow along as we explore more advanced ways to analyze your data. Additionally, though not required, it’s useful to have a basic understanding of WebAdMIT’s functionality since we will be creating Reports and Exports.
