Through a partnership between the
Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) and AASCU, the VSA has been revised to support institutional benchmarking and accountability. The new
VSA Analytics is a robust, interactive, and user-friendly platform for colleges and universities to compare and analyze key performance metrics across institutions. VSA Analytics allows users to build custom analytical and graphical reports with a custom platform in just minutes and eliminates the need to spend days searching, downloading, integrating and analyzing data. Subscribers can add as many campus users as they would like and download the entire custom dataset.
Designed by institutions for institutions, VSA Analytics offers more than 25 benchmarking reports based on a custom national dataset containing almost 400 variables from roughly 4,400 institutions. Data include: enrollment, cost of attendance, graduation rate, R&D expenditures, financial aid, admissions, student-faculty ratio, Student Achievement Measure metrics and much, much more.
This is a sample of a VSA Analytics report.
Each interactive report offers a national profile of a population of institutions defined by the subscriber. In addition, users may benchmark their institution against a custom comparison group and all reports can be downloaded and printed. VSA Analytics offers trend reports with nine years of integrated national data, and new data sources will be added in 2019.
