The Association for Institutional Research’s (AIR) Annual Forum kicked off this week in Washington, DC. The annual conference is the world’s largest gathering of higher education professionals who work in institutional research (IR), effectiveness, assessment and related fields.
Jonathan Gagliardi, associate director of the Center for Policy Research and Strategy (CPRS) at ACE, is speaking on three panels at the conference. The first was an impact session Tuesday on the analytics revolution and its implications on IR, focusing on the evolution of IR to improve student outcomes and performance. The second, scheduled for Thursday, focuses on methodological questions that arise around the calculation of post-collegiate earnings using unemployment insurance data.
For the third panel, also on Thursday, Jonathan Turk, senior policy research analyst with CPRS, will join Gagliardi to discuss the diffusion of IR and the challenges and opportunities that will arise as this function spreads across higher education.
