For the first time, IR&DS has publicly released findings from Stanford's undergraduate and PhD exit surveys. Survey findings are presented in interactive dashboards that allow users to explore topics related to students' educational experiences at Stanford. You can find the new dashboards on the IR&DS Data and Findings tab above under "Surveys."
We have added two new resource pages to this site to improve access to student reporting. Users can now access the most commonly used SIRIS reports through a new portal at https://siris.sites.stanford.edu/portal. And we have created several short video-tutorials to guide users through the My Department dashboard. These videos and other How-To Guides can be found at https://siris.sites.stanford.edu/resources. SIRIS is a resource for Stanford staff who are authorized to use the system for business needs.
SIRIS Student Analytics is moving forward with two new releases: census data and instruction data. Census data allow folks to look at the university’s enrollment patterns over time, while instruction data provides detailed information about who teaches our classes. The SIRIS team is also working on an improved, user-friendly interface for department users. If you are interested in learning more about these developments, please contact the SIRIS team at SIRISemail@example.com.
The IDEAL Dashboard was launched in May 2019 as part of the Provost's IDEAL initiative. The dashboard was a collaborative effort between IR&DS and other campus offices and is the first public release of demographic data encompassing all of Stanford's populations: students, postdoctoral scholars, faculty, and staff. The goal of the dashboard is to provide the public and our community with more information about diversity at Stanford, to highlight differences across our populations, and to show changes over time. While the current set of data are limited in terms of the level of detail and the demographic variables displayed, we plan to continue improving and enhancing the displays over time. The dashboard can be found on the IDEAL homepage on the Our Vision website.
