Data Quality

  • Discontinued staff on-site audits roughly 10 years ago.
  • Data quality issues arose:
    • Over 12 years, 14,000 students were enrolled that never seemed to start as “first-time” students anywhere.
    • Instances where one institution said it was impossible to identify groups of students as residents or non-residents.
    • Hundreds of students at one institution appeared to earn 90+ credit hours in their first year.

How can we Improve

Data Quality?

  • Meetings with institutional staff and discussion of data quality and linkages with funding.
  • Traditional on-site audits.
  • More advanced error checks through record matches over time and across institutions.

Findings

  • None of the public institutions had actual policies governing data quality.
  • Institutional staff had varying levels of understanding of how data was collected, entered into the systems, and verified.
  • Most institutions assumed data in their systems were correct until a student “caught” an error and brought it to their attention.
  • Data (IR) staff and those entering the actual information had very little contact.
  • They really don’t like the term “audit”.

Data Quality Policy

Implementation: November 2007

slide9

Kentucky’s

Data Base system

Data Quality Policy

  • Each institution is required to develop and submit their own data quality policy or a report outlining all the processes in place to ensure data is collected and entered into the system correctly which are due May 2008.
  • Development of new, advanced edits that compare data across time and across institutions.
  • Limitation of fields that the Council will ultimately check.
  • Every other year, institutions must conduct their own data quality check beginning in 2009.

Kentucky’s

Data Base system

Data Quality Policy

  • After identifying the subset of “critical data elements”, data will not be accepted for students without all these fields completed.
  • Beginning in 2010, the Council staff will visit a number of institutions each year to conduct a brief data quality check on-site.
  • Limited to 100 cases of student data with verification of a limited number of the more important variables.
  • Schools and students are not necessarily selected at random.

What do you do with the results?

  • Institutional data quality checks and results from the Council staff checks will be presented publicly to the Council.
  • Institutions’ presidents are answerable for questions and findings.
  • Possible public reports on the state of data quality.
  • Fiscal implications.
