IRMA Week in Review


Week of October 22, 2021

1. We finalized several interactive reports for the Cycle 5 Liberal Studies (including Honors) Academic Program Review (APR) data meeting this week. IRMA's APR reports are located on the IRMA website at the bottom of the Department and Program Resource Room here. For more information, contact Jasmine Ahmad

2. We hosted the October Data Training Workshop on Data Sources to Support New Program Proposals. In this workshop, we did a demo of the Emsi economic and workforce data tool that colleges now can access. We will be posting the recorded session and the one-page Emsi guide on the Department and Program Resource Room here. For more on this and upcoming workshops, contact Julie Artis. For more on Emsi, contact Coleen Dickman.

3. Our next Coffee Break session focuses on the DFW Rates for Undergraduate Courses report. In the session tomorrow morning, we'll talk about how the report works and its various uses. This report, located on the Department and Program Resource Room, shows the rates of student D, F or W grades for undergraduate courses by 100, 200, and 300 levels over the last 10 academic years. For more, contact Joe Filkins.

4. We met with the new PPR Faculty Advisory Committee last week to discuss the PPR model. We also released a PPR update with 2 minor modifications to margin and external demand and reached out to all program chairs with information on this update. If you have questions or comments, contact PPR@depaul.edu and we will be happy to answer any questions.
