WASHINGTON (PRWEB) December 18, 2017 -- HelioCampus, a technology-enabled services company, has released a new, free product, IPEDS Explorer. This offering 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.
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.
“Having worked extensively with IPEDS data using the Data Center as part of my responsibilities in institutional research, I can say with confidence that the HelioCampus dashboards allow for much faster and easier access to this 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 all IPEDS benchmarking data, comparison of one institution with up to three others at a time, and the ability to review a breadth of data including admissions, retention, completion, financials, and faculty data via an intuitive, visual interface.
