Blazing new trails in the area of reporting and transparency? Required and voluntary reporting of student data to external agencies has increased in volume, quantity, and complexity, and understanding the scope of reporting requirements and the associated burden is critical to higher education practitioners. This volume focuses on new directions in institutional reporting––and the associated burden.
The convergence of increased reporting coupled with the demand to be more efficient with resources in a saturated and competitive higher education market make this a timely and needed volume for higher education administrators.

This is the 166th volume of this Jossey–Bass quarterly report series. Timely and comprehensive, New Directions for Institutional Research provides planners and administrators in all types of academic institutions with guidelines in such areas as resource coordination, information analysis, program evaluation, and institutional management.
