It is widely recognised across the HE sector that there is potential for improvement in the way that student records data is stored, managed, and processed at all stages of the student lifecycle.
We are working with UCISA and ARC on a project which initially aims to build a consensus on the challenges that members are facing managing student records. Our systematic approach to this research is important, as much of the discussion to date has been ad-hoc and not joined up.
So far we have interviewed 28 individuals from 18 universities representing a range of types of institution using different student record systems. In parallel we have carried out a sector-wide survey which attracted 148 responses from 72 institutions, giving us interesting quantitative and qualitative insights.
Our research will continue into 2023 and we look forward to sharing our findings with members as soon as possible.
