Academic PBIS (Performance Based Instruction System)

The Academic information in IQ provides integrated information on courses, students, and faculty to allow deans and administrators quickly and efficiently to assess trends in enrollment, teaching activities, and faculty utilization that will directly impact the instructional planning and budgeting process. All available data is snapshot data, usually the 12th Day (Census date) snapshot; however, some deliverables are end of semester or fall-to-fall snapshots (see the Current Status of IQ/PBIS Cubes and Reports link below for more information). The IQ/PBIS Academic information is presented in a way to answer questions such as the following:

  • What is the trend for enrollment for a given course by student level?
  • How can we better predict the needs for class seats and sections?
  • What is the overall productivity of our faculty in teaching, research, and administrative activities?

A variety of standard reports are also available for authorized users.

Facilities Information

Campus Planning Facilities Management (CPFM) utilizes Cognos Reports primarily for operational purposes such as exception reporting, inventory control, and work order management. In addition, various metrics-based tools are found in the Project Management Scorecard folder; this suite of reports includes summary, scorecard, and detailed information on Project Manager Performance. Cubes are currently being developed for measurement and analysis of Key Performance Indicators including average response time, building maintenance costs per square foot, overhead costs by crew, etc.

The Financial Information site provides university leaders with various tools to quickly analyze financial statuses and activity. Interactive reports, or cubes allow leaders easily to answer questions like these:

  • Based on trends for telecommunication expenses, what should I expect them to be next year?

In addition to Cubes, several transactional reports are available to allow leaders to look more deeply into the reasons for the trends or statuses they see. These reports help answer such questions as the following:

  • Why are the entertainment expenses in one of my departments higher than normal?
