External Data Reports

The University of Wisconsin System Accountability Reports provide a wide variety of information about the UW-System and the individual UW System institutions including enrollments, retention, graduation rates, student demographics, and academic activities.  The accountability reporting system has been replaced by the UW System Accountability Dashboard.

The BCSSE collects information about entering college students’ high school academic and co-curricular experiences, as well as their expectations for participating in educationally purposeful activities during the first college year. Below are UWRF’s Institutional Summary, Frequency Distribution and Mean Scale Score with Selected Student Comparison Reports.

The Common Data Set (CDS) is a nationally developed, unified set of data that allows institutions to easily gain insight of basic information and statistics, such as enrollment and admissions data, for their respective university.

The CDS data is organized into 10 sections: A) General Information, B) Enrollment and Persistence, C) Freshman Admission, D) Transfer Admission, E) Academic Offerings and Policies, F) Student Life, G) Annual Expenses, H) Financial Aid, I) Instructional Faculty and Class Size, and J) Degrees Conferred

IPEDS is the primary source for data on colleges, universities, technical and vocational postsecondary institutions in the United States.  The updated data center tools allow for easy comparisons or groupings of institutions using a wide range of variables.

The Student Achievement Measure (SAM) provides a comprehensive picture of student progress on their path to earning a college degree or certificate. Visit the SAM institution page for UWRF.

The University of Wisconsin System site for education reports and statistics provides various interactive reports with data for the UW System as a whole and for the individual UW institutions (including UWRF). Reports include student enrollments, degrees conferred, retention and graduation rates, time and credits to degree, and other topics. Most reports can be filtered to display data based on institution, headcounts or full-time equivalency (FTE), student level (undergraduate or graduate), new freshmen or new transfer entrance status, and various demographic identifiers (residency, gender, race/ethnicity, etc.).
