Using Your Data

Many institutions are well-intentioned when conducting research and assessment to gain insight into how the campus environment and programs affect student learning.  Unfortunately, interpreting and using data collected effectively can get lost in busy day-to-day schedules.  To help you visualize how you may use your data and inspire you to make data-driven change on your campus, we provide examples of how other institutions are using the MSL to better their campus communities.
