This evaluation was intended to get an early sense of the practical success of Unistats and the Key Information Set (KIS) after the relaunch of the Unistats web-site in September 2012. It covers three distinct strands:
Strand A: The user experience
Strand B: The institutional perspective
Strand C: Data audit report: Available on the Data audit page.
Findings from the early evaluation show that the site is well used and recognised as a useful and usable comparison site which can support users’ higher education choices. The work has identified a range of changes to the design and functionality of the site, which will be taken forward in the short, medium and longer terms, and provides other recommendations which will be taken into consideration within the Review of the provision of information in higher education. This commenced in January 2013 and will report in 2014-15.
