HelioCampus, a technology-enabled services company, has released a new version of IPEDS Explorer. This tool provides pre-built dashboards that allow institutions to access, compare, and explore IPEDS data including key benchmarks such as admission funnel metrics, retention, completions, and more at no cost. The latest release includes guided tutorials for each dashboard, providing users with questions to consider as they explore their data and sample analyses.
IPEDS data can be very valuable for higher education institutions. Whether you want to compare against peers or competitors, the data provided can help institutions explore key metrics. However, many institutions fail to make use of this data because the format is often time-consuming to access, creating a barrier to understanding trends over time.
HelioCampus created IPEDS Explorer to help institutions make their IPEDS data useful and actionable. This tool provides a glimpse into what we do. We are in the business of making complex data simple. Whether it’s IPEDS, internal or other third party sources, HelioCampus helps institutions make their data accessible, understandable and actionable.
“Our updated IPEDS Explorer tool is easier than ever to use. With the addition of tutorials and guided questions, even if you don’t have a technical background, you are able to draw insights from the data,” said Doug Nutter, HelioCampus principal data analyst and former director of IR at a regional public university.
Key components of the IPEDS Explorer tool include access to IPEDS data for institutional benchmarking and analysis, comparison of one institution with up to three others at a time, the ability to review a breadth of data including seven pre-built dashboards with admissions, retention, completion, financials, and faculty data, and tutorials and guiding questions to make the data understandable and actionable.
“Having been practitioners ourselves we are thrilled to contribute this tool to the higher education community. We hope that it provides institutions easier access to their data for benchmarking and analysis,” said Darren Catalano, CEO of HelioCampus.
