Resources from the
Office of
Institutional Research
and Assessment
Office of Institutional Research and Assessment
The Office of Institutional Research conducts a
wide variety of quantitative analyses to guide
policy and evaluate academic programs and
administrative processes at CUNY. The office
collects, manages and organizes data to support
the analytic and reporting needs of the
University including mandatory federal, state
and city reports, ad-hoc requests, grant
applications and major projects, such as
enrollment management.
OIRA hosts a range of reporting resources
• OIRA Websites:
– Easily accessible reports for the public and University users
• Institutional Research Database (IRDB)
– Data warehouse of fixed, frozen extracts of enrollment,
student characteristics, course characteristics, application
data, financial aid data optimized for reporting
• CUNY Business Intelligence Light (CBIL)
– Daily-refreshed enrollment and course data from CUNYfirst
to facilitate daily enrollment tracking
• I184-a: generates Show, Performance, and Graduation
files on request
• CUNY Analytics
– New, web-based reporting platform with daily updates
rolling out in 2014
OIRA Public Website
• www.cuny.edu/ir
• Official reports of census data and outcomes for all
colleges: retention, graduation, degrees, student profiles
• Key reports updated annually or by term

applicants, admits,
and enrollees by
demographic
characteristics and
academic
indicators
• Passwords

staff by request
Institutional Research Database (IRDB)
• Official fixed, frozen repository of University-wide
historical enrollments and ancillary data
– Optimized for reporting, e.g.,
• Trends in enrollment by college, term, degree, major
• Tracking freshman cohorts and transfer cohorts for
retention and graduation statistics
– Supports “canned” official reports/workbooks and
ad hoc queries
– Data are very robust, but complex

CBIL Screen Shot
CBIL Data Flows
I-184a
OIRA can generate versions of the Show,
Performance, and Graduation Files for Colleges
on request
• Output from I-184a interface will be
reformatted to conform to the historical
formats of the files formerly produced from
SIMS.
• Show files generated from the I-184a will
continue to be used for TAP certification and
other legacy applications.
OIRA CUNY Analytics
• OIRA will launch a new web-based platform (OBIEE) for
delivering similar data content as CBIL
• Features dashboard-style reports and options for
scheduled and ad-hoc report development
• Some content will be more targeted to user groups, such
as enrollment managers or faculty workload coordinators
• Refreshed daily and eventually capable of intra-day
updates
• Test rollout beginning in Summer 2014, with wider access
expected for Fall 2014
CUNY Analytics Data Flows
I-806
Administrative Data
Warehouse
I-806 Extract to ADW Interface
• Extraction of 130 tables (mostly CS, with some
tables from HCM) from CUNYfirst each night
into Oracle Database.
• AKA ADW, PWERP, pdADW
• Each night updates include students who are
enrolled this semester, or the previous or the
next. All others stay as they were.
• ADW includes data from SIMS schools in
separate tables for a full picture of the
student.
I-806 Extract to ADW Interface
• ADW data can be accessed via the Citrix
remote desktop system.
• Data can be read with Crystal Reports and SQL
Developer.
• Developed Crystal Reports can be shared via
the Business Objects Enterprise Reporting
system.
• To request access, the form can be found at:

Strategic Vision – The Goals
We want to:
• Establish an accessible near-real-time copy of all CUNYfirst
data.
• Establish and promote modern shared technical tools for
creating queries, reports, dashboards, analyses, and more.
• Define the architecture to allow the eventual inclusion of
non-CUNYfirst data.
• Define the architecture to scale to the whole University.
• Establish data governance:
– Expand the work of the Office of Institutional Research in
creating meaningful common definitions.
– Authority over areas of data.
– Acceptable levels of error.
