In pursuit of our goal to share key data, learning, and effective practices across the higher education sector, Powered by Publics is annually collecting institution-level data for eight measures that will contribute to the analysis of our collective progress in supporting student success for specific groups of students. These measures were identified in 2019 by a Data Advisory Committee comprised of representatives from a subset of Powered by Publics institutions with expertise in data and institutional research.
The Core Data Metrics (CDM) collection will open July 11, 2022. The collection will officially close September 30, 2022. If you need extra time for the submission, please send a request to CDM@aplu.org.
To submit data, please review the following items:
Watch a recording and view slides from the introductory webinar on the CDM process. Topics included: Tasks, timelines, resources, metrics, definitions, and an overview of the portal. We will email an invitation to all PxP participants.
Individuals who submitted CDM data last year will have access to the portal again this year. To designate a new institutional Point of Contact who will receive credentials to access the Portal CLICK HERE. Portal access is based on your institutional IPEDS ID. Verify your IPEDS ID at College Navigator.
APLU will host bi-weekly office hours on Thursdays from 1-2pm from July 14 through October 7. All individuals with access to the portal will be invited to join.
APLU has worked with the National Student Clearinghouse to integrate the Postsecondary Data Partnership (PDP) with the CDM. If your institution participates in the PDP, you have the option to submit data through the PDP. Please designate APLU as a recipient in your data-sharing agreement and send the request to the CDM team at firstname.lastname@example.org before August 31, 2022.
In order to examine data to identify potential areas of inequity for certain populations, each metric will be disaggregated for 15 subgroups:
