What are community dashboards?
Community-generated, interactive dashboards, which address the critical questions that need answering by the sector.
How to access the dashboards
Community dashboards are available on a free trial basis until 31 July 2018.
- Higher education league tables - time series exploration of the Guardian and The Times/Sunday Times league tables
- School finder - find the right areas and schools to target in order to increase recruitment onto your courses, tailored to your entry tariffs
- Leaver destinations - where students go after graduation, including areas of further study, institutions of further study, industries and employment status
- Comparable providers - see how your institution compares against your competitors, and find your closest comparator according to 13 common measures
- Business and community interaction – compare the amount of income you generate with other institutions in areas including collaborative research, commercialisation of intellectual property (IP) and community and cultural engagement
- Postgraduate research analysis – find out how many postgraduate researchers you have and how they are funded, comparing against other institutions and showing growth and decline over time
- Athena Swan and race equality - how do you stand up against compliance with race equality charter across my workforce compared to other institutions
- Brexit implications on research - see the potential effects of Brexit on postgraduate research as well as staff, and estimate the effect on student and staff numbers and income in different scenarios
- Destination of leavers by activity – explore yearly trends in the activity of students leaving higher education
- Estates management record (EMR) benchmarks - explore a selection of higher education provider estates investment key metrics. Benchmark your estate with other similar providers (large/small research or large/small teaching) across the sector and potentially assist with decisions as to whether investment/upgrade is the best or most viable option
- A-level entries - visualises the total number of A-level entries in England, split by JACS subject group, A-level subject, and additionally by sex. It covers eight years’ data from 2009/10 to 2016/17. It allows the user to visualise and identify patterns in demand across subject group and sex to help make decisions on course viability and market potential
- Costs vs staff correlation - looks at a HE providers costs and correlations between those costs and staff FTE. It provides access to a range of key financial indicators by provider and provider group, allowing them to make comparisons, help with investment or spending decisions, and assist the user to be better informed on sustainability risks and issues
- University research benchmarking - measures income gained by HE providers from research, broken down by individual cost centre and income source. It can be used to assess relative research strengths for individual providers and help users, such as planning managers, to support financial sustainability. It looks at three years’ finance and staff data (2013/14 to 2015/16) plus a five-year trend analysis (2011/12 to 2015/16)
The community dashboards will continue to grow as our innovative Analytics Labs teams explore new topics.
Together with HESA, we'll also negotiate with data providers to create new dashboards from the sector, as we have already done with the Guardian and The Times to offer league table dashboards.
Contact us with your feedback and don't forget to let your colleagues know so they can make the most of this opportunity.
