Presenter: Dr. W. Allen Richman, Senior Director for Research, MSCHE

Mr. Douglas MacDonald, Senior Analytics Specialist, Middle States Commission on Higher Education

Presenter: Mr. Douglas MacDonald, Senior Analytics Specialist, MSCHE

Audience:
This workshop is designed for leadership who want to know “how are we doing?” and for staff who need to prepare data for easier reporting and visualization. The historical response to this question, “Things are going great.” is no longer acceptable. We must define “great” using data, established benchmarks, and realistic expectations.
