Data Manuals and Reports

Data Displays for Review

PESB Annual Report

Data from the annual reports are included in the PESB Data and Research site. 

Find an error in your program's report? Update the corrected data by resubmitting an entire report, e.g. B3, D1, using the Upload Program Data Tool application.

Anomaly Reports

As we begin preparing and error checking Title II reports, we will be adding Anomaly Reports for programs to review.

Programs are encouraged to review this data for anomalies - is there an explanation for them? - and make corrections and resubmit reports if any are discovered. Anomalies might include:

        • spikes (either up or down) in data year to year
        • data values that are outliers in a particular data set
        • data that is dramatically different from peer institutions

Data Manual Documentation

Check the PESB Data Manuals webpage for current and previous year data manuals, as well as access to archived versions of the documentation.

See also Frequently Asked Data Questions for technical changes / updates.

Includes assessment report data dictionaries and sample files (if available), data tables used in B and E reports, etc.
