The Institutional Research & Effectiveness office at Jackson College has converted the Institutional Dashboard from an Excel–based, met- or not-met, data display to Tableau, a visual analytics and interactive data display. We have also provided trend data useful in visualizing historical results as well as being able to better anticipate the future direction of the data.
Please be sure to read the footnotes provided in several charts and graphs. You will notice that the College changed the survey instruments several times over the past ten years. We did so intentionally, because capturing the same data repeatedly over time provides stable, but eventually unchanging, data and does not afford the College new or hidden points of view made available by using a different survey instrument with different questions. Different surveys use different scales, so we have done our best to equate the scales for the purposes of graphing the Institutional Dashboard trends.
