Frequently Asked Questions
- Who is authorized to use the dashboards?
Access is for named users only.
- Is my access automatic?
For certain position titles, access will be granted automatically. These include Academic Senate leadership, deans, associate deans, and divisional deans. Additional faculty users are expected to be added in the near future. Other faculty and staff may gain access on a need-to-know basis.
- What topics are covered?
Current topics include graduation rates, research activity, course waitlists and fill rates, average credit loads, and historical class enrollments. Additional topics are expected to be added on a rolling basis.
- What if the numbers do not match another report I use?
Often this is a question of definitions. Each dashboard has a user guide that identifies the data source, update frequency, and details about how key values are defined. Currently, dashboards are not connected to "live" data systems such as Banner, so the timing of the report may explain a difference. Most of the dashboards are geared toward longer-term analysis and reporting.
