Institutional Effectiveness

The Office of Institutional Research at Barton Community College is moving to an institutional research function. Instead of just producing data we are assembling data to a usable and readable format.

One underlying goal of the office is to support student success. By creating data in a usable format we strive to support other departments as they work directly with students.

The main dashboard provided by the office is

This dashboard contains multiple pages of both live and static data. At the top of most pages is a fuel gauge quickly giving the user an overview of where the college is in achieving this years goals.

Data reflected on this site and displayed on reports created by the IR department might seem to be inaccurate when compared. Actually this is not the case of one being "right" and one being "wrong" but, because the data sets have different criteria, sources, purposes, time frames, and coverage the data will sometimes differ.
