New Website Quickly Navigates and Makes Sense of Complicated Data from Higher-Education IPEDS Website
|By Business Wire
|February 5, 2014 11:01 AM EST
Public Insight has created a powerful website that transforms a widely
used education database, Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System
(IPEDS), into accessible information, so that users can quickly and
easily navigate and analyze this otherwise complicated data source.
the company’s public analytics website, has integrated IPEDS data for
all U.S. colleges and universities into one, easy-to-use online platform
that gives users the ability to explore admission, enrollment,
graduation, financial aid and other IPEDS data in seconds. It also
presents the information in easy-to-view visualizations, allowing users
to compare and benchmark schools quickly and easily.
The new web platform means that, for the first time, someone with no
data analysis or computer programming background can uncover powerful
insights and trends in higher education and specific institutions.
“With 360-Public, you can finally make IPEDS work for you,” said Public
Insight CEO Dan Quigg. “IPEDS is traditionally complicated and takes
time to compile and analyze, even for someone with a substantial
knowledge of database structures. We’ve already done that work within
the 360-Public web site, giving users the ability to easily make sense
of this otherwise complex data in less time and with less effort than
For example, with 360-Public, anyone can easily compare SAT/ACT scores
of students at various colleges and universities. With a few clicks of
the mouse, users can see how many students are in the 25th
percentile and how many are in the 75th percentile for test
scores, for instance.
Shawn Brown, Interim Executive Director of the Northeast Ohio Council on
Higher Education (NOCHE), says the 360-public.com site will make a
significant difference for educators, guidance counselors and school
administrators seeking to understand more about colleges and
“NOCHE uses a variety of public economic and education data to advance
its mission connecting business and higher education,’’ Brown said.
“Accessing data from public sources is rarely easy, which limits our
ability to gain insight. 360-Public makes it easier to access critical
data and allow us to focus on how to use data in a way that improves
practices in regional educational attainment.
“The addition of IPEDS data is valuable especially for anyone
researching higher education,’’ he added.
To see an example of how it works, view the video:
The site offers several levels of analysis, from “public” to paid
subscriptions, which provide increased reporting and data analysis.
There is no charge to use the public version.
In addition to higher education databases, 360-public.com combines a
wide variety of information sources from various public sites, including
census and statewide school performance data.
