Del Mar's Dashboard

For a display of a smooth-running dashboard, check out Del Mar College's interactive charts on their Institutional Research and Effectiveness web site. The site also offers Statistical Profiles (mostly in PDF files) with convenient "new" icons for returning visitors. The site provides a nice history of assessment efforts at the College with many files and links.

Among the Statistical Profiles are course survey results. Small n courses (fewer than 5 students) are excluded and identities (such as faculty names) are omitted. Otherwise the results are complete and a sound example of transparency.

Del Mar is an Associate degree-granting institution located in Corpus Christi, Texas.
