Institutional Research & Assessment
The Office of Institutional Research and Assessment is responsible for collecting, organizing, analyzing and reporting historical and current data about Hamilton College and peer institutions to support college planning, assessment, and overall effectiveness.
Current Projects & Activities
Spring is going to be another busy semester for us! Here is what we have planned for the coming months:
- The U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics has invited Hamilton College to participate in the 2015-16 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS). The NPSAS study aims to provide a better understanding of how students and their families finance education after high school. We are working with the Office of Financial Aid on this project.
- We will be working the Library and Information Technology Services to administer two surveys to students: the MISO Survey and the ECAR Survey. The MISO (Measuring Information Service Outcomes) Survey is "designed to measure how faculty, students, and staff view library and computing services in higher education." The ECAR (Educause Center for Analysis and Research) Survey will be used to "improve IT's contribution to higher education." Selected students and employees should look for invitations to participate in these surveys around mid-February.
