Coming Soon! Benchmarking for Institutions

Mar 9, 2020 | Postsecondary Data Partnership

PDP’s much-awaited benchmarking feature is coming soon in spring 2020. This feature allows participating PDP institutions to compare their own outcomes against the outcomes of a group of similar institutions. Benchmarking offers multiple benefits by allowing PDP institutions to identify and address areas for improvement, raise questions about the efficacy of current processes and practices and craft action plans to close key performance gaps.

Our first release will have benchmarking functionality for the following key performance indicators (KPIs):

  • CAR (Credit Accumulation Rate)
  • CCR (Credit Completion Ratio)
  • Outcomes
  • R/P (Retention/Persistence)

Institution groupings will be based on the following attributes:

  • 2-year public by state
  • 4-year public/private by state
  • Carnegie Classification
  • HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities)
  • HSI (Hispanic-Serving Institutions)

If you are experiencing issues with your service, you can check on the availability of our online system on the Service Availability Status page.
