Presentation Transcript


  • Review the 2008/09 Student Record

  • Identify areas for improvement for 2009/10

  • Highlight future changes

Review of 2008 09
Review of 2008/09

  • Impact of other activities at institutions on meeting deadlines…

  • …impact of audits and other external data demands

  • Late amendments to data (including qualifications, on entry and student data)

  • Policy change impacting on live and fixed database submissions

Issues identified in 2008 09
Issues identified in 2008/09

  • EntryProfile.NEWENT

  • HIN reports

  • FTE reporting for non-standard years

  • Postcode information (both term-time and on entry)

  • Performance Indicators

Dlhe coverage
DLHE coverage

  • Course.COURSEAIM codes M41, H41 and H42 will be added to the DLHE target population for 2009/10, as will new codes D01, M02 and M26

  • This is partly in response to HEI requests

Instance owninst

  • Records the institution's own internal identifier for the instance…

  • …introduced in response to HEI requests…

  • …and subsequently extended from 20 characters in length to 30 following a further request

Student disable

  • A number of institutions had asked that all of the coding frames for disability be aligned and this is now being put into practice

  • New coding frame to be included in the UCAS systems for year of entry 2010 and hence the 2010/11 HESA Student Record

  • ‘Information refused’ option now included

  • HESA will continue to accept old style codes for continuing students (where COMDATE<20100801), so there will be no requirement for institutions to resurvey or recode

Entryprofile qualent3

  • Introduction of a revised coding frame to be named QUALENT3 for 2010/11 to facilitate better coding of information

  • The revised coding frame is based on the structure already implemented for the Course.COURSEAIM field but accounts for the newer 16-19 qualifications and some of the detail needed at the HE level to support the ELQ policy

  • Some label definitions of QUALENT3 have been revised to ensure better understanding of the coding frame by students, and this work will continue

Locsdy s and aggregate offshore
LOCSDY ‘S’ and Aggregate Offshore

  • S - Studying abroad and included in the Student record as student has spent or will spend more than 8 weeks in the UK

  • ‘S’ instances are out of populations

Implications of using code s
Implications of using code ‘S’

  • Students returned with a LOCSDY of S will need to be done so on a full record…

  • …the full record requirement will dictate the inclusion of entry profile information, modules, and outcomes

  • Instance.DESTOCM is a field that will be validated to ensure it is completed to provide information on the country where the study is taking place

Validation kit
Validation kit

  • ‘Roll-on’ version of validation kit released in February 2010…

  • …planned release for December 2010 for 2010/11 Student Record

  • Full validation kit to be released in April containing all 2009/10 validation rules

Downloadable commit errors
Downloadable COMMIT errors

  • System previously only displayed 100 COMMIT errors…

  • …responding to feedback from post-collection workshops…

  • …Aardvark will now provide all COMMIT errors back to HEIs using a downloadable fixed length file

  • File will also allow better manipulation and reporting of errors internally at an institution

Data supply
Data supply

  • What is it?

  • Why does it exist?

  • What can it be used for?

  • When do I get it?

  • 2009/10 Data Supply will include COURSEID, MODID, and OWNINST in the structure of the files

Heses reconciliation
HESES reconciliation

  • For HEIs in England (and Wales from 2010/11) Aardvark will automatically send a file to HEFCE’s HESES reconciliation system after every successful COMMIT…

  • …the file will then be processed by HEFCE with the results of the reconciliation being displayed through the Aardvark system

  • Delays to HEFCE’s system will not impact upon the processing of your submission with HESA or the data quality assurance process

Data query repository
Data Query Repository

  • Data Query Repository (DQR) is the system used by HESA to raise and store queries against institutional submissions…

  • …out of this system HESA produce query documents for HEIs to respond to

  • The system is being redesigned and will have a customer facing aspect

Changes to check documentation 1
Changes to check documentation 1

  • Item 2 ‘Student instance apportionment’ – improved highlighting of year-on-year changes

  • Item 3 ‘Fundability analysis’ – item to move to the Institutional Information sheet

  • Item 4 ‘New entrant analysis’ – static data to be added for comparison

  • Item 5 ‘UCAS first year undergraduate entrants’ – to be removed

  • Item 6 ‘UCAS Outgoing ERASMUS/SOCRATES student numbers’ – will move to an exception rule

  • Item 7 ‘Course length profile’ – will be made into a table that will be more useful for the use of NSS e.g. use NSS/1st degree population and flag item as a priority

  • Item 8 ‘Student cohort analysis’ – will move to an exception rule

Changes to check documentation 2
Changes to check documentation 2

  • Item 10 ‘Highest qualification on entry for continuing students’ – to be removed

  • Item 13 ‘Unknown values’ – populations and sector averages to be reviewed

  • Item 14b ‘Average credit points per instance’ – to be removed

  • ITT sheet – item 1a/b to be restricted to final year students

  • Cost centre – breakdown by level and FUNDCODE as a separate table

  • RAE – to be removed from check documentation
