A Day on – Assessing & Benchmarking Data
Consultant’s Assignment: Deep dive into the school’s data. Collection of constituent opinions. School’s Advance Assignment: Administer surveys from the NAIS Online Survey Center or other vendors, including the Parent Satisfaction Survey and the Young Alumni Survey, plus student engagement data from Indiana University’s the High School Survey of Student Engagement (HSSE). Produce from the NAIS Demographic Center the schools demographic report and projections in the years ahead. Share benchmark data from comparable schools (StatsOnline) or produce “push-button reports” from some or all of the new NAIS Data and Analysis for School Leadership (DASL) Dashboards in key performance areas (KPIs): admissions, budget, endowment/debt, plant, student turnover, financial aid, tuition, net tuition revenue, faculty, annual fund, and staffing. (There are user tutorials on the NAIS website to assist schools in using the programmable dashboards or creating their own.) Submit to the Heads Up consultant one week ahead of the visit the data report, and the admin team’s “key takeaways” from each of the constituent surveys.
Consultant’s Deliverable: Debrief on and structured exploration of the findings.
