IPEDS Technical Review Panel #59: Data Visualization Using IPEDS Data (2019)
RTI International, the contractor for the IPEDS Data Collection, invited Kristin McKinley to a Technical Review Panel (TRP) meeting in June 2019 at the US Department of Education National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) in Washington, DC. The purpose of this TRP extends what was learned from the TRP #58 “Exploring Best Practices in Data Visualizations” meeting that convened other organizations (i.e., federal agencies, postsecondary institutions, research, and other non-education) to discuss effective data visualization tools. Applying best practices in data visualizations, this TRP will present several data visuals using IPEDS data. The TRP panel is tasked to provide suggestions that improves upon the data visuals, which are targeted at IPEDS data users (i.e., researchers, policymakers, and consumers).
