Microsoft Canadian Colleges Exec Briefing – Institutional Effectiveness

by | February 4, 2011

David Raney MD, CEO Nuventive

How do you achieve Institutional Effectiveness?

What questions do you need to answer?

  • are your core learning outcomes improving?
  • how do you assess institutional performance?
  • how do you measure strategic goals?

The Growing Challenges of Accountability – many challenges here centred around disconnect between data and planning

What is Institutional Effectiveness?

  • Efficiencies – business goals
  • Achievement – academic & administrative outcomes
  • Culture of Data Driven Decision Making

Nuventive tool – tracdat now being developed in SharePoint and iWebfolio for individual assessments

Microsoft Platform for Institutional Effectiveness (MPIE) – aligned, balanced, pervasive

Closing the Loop – plan, collect, analyze, utilize, follow-up then repeat

What is seen in a typical assessment cycle is that lots of time is spent on planning and very little time spent using the data to learn what happened and how it can influence the plan.
