Intermediaries for Scale institutions will submit data to the Postsecondary Data Partnership (PDP). The PDP is a national effort helping colleges and universities gain a fuller picture of student progress and outcomes, meet various reporting requirements, and identify where to focus their resources.
Through the PDP, institutions will receive interactive dashboards that deliver early momentum metrics and student outcomes by cohort, cohort term, age, race, gender, Pell Grant status, Grade Point Average, first-generation-student status, and more to gauge the effectiveness of institutional support. The PDP also benchmarks institutions against peer institutions in these areas.
