Dr. Darrell E. Glenn

Director of Data Management and Analysis, Ohio Board of Regents

Overview l.jpg


  • HEI and Regents Reports – Detailed information on Ohio postsecondary outcomes, mostly public

  • NCHEMS Higher Education Information – High level education, demographic, and economic data at national, state, and county level

  • IPEDS – Detailed, wide-ranging federal Department of Education surveys of all postsecondary institutions in U.S.

Higher education information hei system l.jpg

Higher Education Information (HEI) System

  • Standardized unit-record data files from all 37 public institutions

  • Student demographics and enrollment, course, degrees, faculty and personnel, tuition and financial aid, course-level expenditures, facilities data

  • “Unit-record” means “highest level of detail.” Individual students, individual courses, individual instructors – all connected by ID numbers

  • Started in 1998. One of the largest and most comprehensive higher education databases in U.S.

Old stuff l.jpg

Old Stuff

  • Performance Reports

    • Statewide summary report is still a good overview of available higher education indicators

    • Institutional detail reports contain older “Statistical Profile” data

  • Historical Reports: Student Inventory Data and Basic Data Series Reports

    • If you need to go “way back.” Format is not especially friendly

Data outside of ohio l.jpg

Data Outside of Ohio

  • NCHEMS Higher Education Information

  • IPEDS (Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System)

Nchems higher education information l.jpg

NCHEMS Higher Education Information

  • www.nchems.org

  • “Provides state policymakers and analysts timely and accurate data and information that are useful in making sound higher education policy decisions. The Information Center is a comprehensive "one-stop-shop" for state-level higher education data and information, and a leader in coordinating the collection of missing data and information that are crucial for higher education policy analysis.“

  • Point and click, easy to use interface. Data are available in tables, graphs, and maps. Cool.

Sample nchems graph handout 5 l.jpg

Sample NCHEMS Graph – Handout #5

  • 9th Graders Chance for College by Age 19

Ipeds integrated postsecondary education data system l.jpg

IPEDS - Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System

  • www.nces.ed.gov/ipeds/

  • System of interrelated surveys conducted annually by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).

  • Universe -- every college, university, and technical and vocational institution that participates in the federal student financial aid programs.

  • Survey areas - enrollments, program completions, graduation rates, faculty and staff, finances, institutional prices, and student financial aid.

Dr glenn s opinions on ipeds l.jpg

Dr. Glenn’s Opinions on IPEDS

  • Only national source of comparative institutional data

  • Comprehensive

  • Detailed

  • Complicated

  • Not “cool,” but useful if you apply some effort

Student success rates challenges in measurement and interpretation l.jpg

Student Success Rates – Challenges in Measurement and Interpretation

  • IPEDS Graduation Rate Survey – Most common source for graduation rate data

  • IPEDS definition of graduation rate for four-year institutions

    • Denominator = First-time, Full-time, Degree-seeking freshmen who begin in fall term

    • Numerator = Students who earn bachelor’s degree from “initial” institution

    • Timeframe = Six years

Issues with ipeds graduation rate l.jpg

Issues with IPEDS Graduation Rate

  • Many students are not in the tracking cohort; their success is not measured

  • Part-time, spring term starts, transfers-in are out of the picture

  • Outcomes tracking is incomplete – if you leave one school and graduate from another, you are not counted as a graduate

  • What is special about six years?

An expanded view of graduation rates l.jpg

An Expanded View of Graduation Rates

  • Ohio public universities “IPEDS” rate = 56%

  • Transfers out who graduate from another Ohio public university = 3%

  • Associate degree earners = 2%

  • Still enrolled at Ohio public institution in 6th year = 12%

  • Total measured graduation or persistence = 73%

  • Unmeasured success = any graduation or persistence at private or out-of-state colleges

  • True success rate might be well over 75%

What does it cost to attend college l.jpg

What Does it Cost to Attend College?

  • Various answers

    • Tuition

    • It depends

    • Don’t know

    • Too much

    • How much you got?

  • New data is giving us better answers

    • Student-level data on tuition, all instructional fees, and financial aid

    • Full price has multiple components, not just tuition

    • Subtract grant aid to get Net Price

    • We have a pattern of Net Prices, not a single tuition rate
