Institutional Research offices are often reactive, spending much of their time gathering data to satisfy internal requests and comply with state/federal requirements. To use data effectively on campus, however, requires IR to take a more proactive role, turning data into information. In this demonstration, we highlight several features of ZogoTech’s data warehouse and analytics tools designed to do just that, including powerful tools for: calculating conditional probabilities; evaluating the effectiveness of interventions; determining the utilization rate of courses and classrooms; and comparing enrollment today to the same day the previous year.
