Technical documentation - Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) Year Two illustrative metrics

The TEF Year Two illustrative metrics have been released to assist institutions with informing a response to the department for Business, Innovations and Skills (BIS) ‘Teaching Excellence Framework: technical consultation for year 2’ and to understand how the underlying HESA and ILR data has been used to derive the illustrative metrics.  The outputs were made available to HEIs and FECs on 24 June 2016.

Technical documentation - Reconciliation exercise

The reconciliation exercise compares each institution's in-year HESES data with it's end-year HESA data. (For FECs, the exercise compares HEIFES & ILR data). These summary outputs help institutions to identify any discrepancies or errors in their data.

As part of the exercise, we also identify a number of institutions where these inconsistencies produce differences in funding that go above certain levels. These selected institutions will be contacted by our Data Assurance team, who will request a formal response and action plan.
