BYU-Pathway Worldwide is a growing organization designed to offer affordable online education to students around the world. The Institutional Research Department within BYU-Pathway raises the collective intelligence of the organization by opening a window into the performance of students, programs, and practices. That intelligence is seen in strategies shaped by performance gaps, objectives set and pursued based on outcomes analysis, decisions informed by data, and focused efforts aligned by a common set of measurements. This is accomplished by producing institutional dashboards, implementing mechanisms for gathering qualitative data, researching strategic issues, and creating self-serve reporting tools that align to organizational priorities. These tools put decision-ready data in the hands of leaders, while masking the complexity of harvesting, analyzing, and visualizing that data.
