Lightning Talk Series—“Making Data Simple: A Three-Step Process Toward Evergreen Data Analysis”

AEFIS Academy Community Event


Mr. Mark Green

Director of Institutional Research

Holy Family University

October 14, 2020 @ 2:00 PM 2:30 PM EDT


Lightning Talks are short, targeted presentations that provide insight into best practices, challenges, and successes in assessment. Listen in as some of the greatest minds and thought leaders share authentic assessment processes, continuous improvement stories and innovative approaches toward lifelong learning and student success.

These days, data is all around us – and each day more data is created than we can effectively use. Student data is no exception and student surveys are one of the more important data points for your institution. They highlight your students’ voices and play a key role in the assessment process. However, hours are often spent working with data on spreadsheets rather than analyzing the results for meaningful use – leading to spreadsheet purgatory. In this session, we examine a framework for survey data lifecycle management to create reproducible, evergreen processes. We will connect practitioners with a framework that allows them to streamline their data processing so they can spend more time analyzing and presenting data. Participants will learn how to build a system that allows you to have more time analyzing data rather than building reports from scratch.
