Analysis and Outcomes

What level of data is available to Universities to measure & report against key targets & outcomes?
The level of data that is available from the Aspire database is limited only by the requirement of the institution. Each transaction is recorded in detail so we can supply information at the level of an individual student relative a single product from a particular vendor. Alternatively the reports can be summarised at whatever is deemed to be the appropriate level and presented in tabular, graphic or electronic formats. Correlational data from existing Aspire schemes has shown a relationship between the stated objectives of the scheme and the achieved outcomes – for example an improvement in retention statistics for the institution. See the UEL Case Study for more details.

How has Aspire delivered educational gain?
Correlational data from existing Aspire schemes has demonstrated that there is a relationship between the level of student spend on core learning resources via the Aspire scheme and the level of qualification obtained at the end of their course. See the UEL Case Study for more details.

How can Aspire be used to support WP and retention strategies?
By using the Aspire scheme to not only give financial support but also to target that support at things designed to help them with their studies, the University is creating a level playing field for all students regardless of their financial status. Aspire can also help to identify students who are not engaging with the University and thereby prompt intervention or remedial action.

Is there any evidence that Aspire has helped other Universities to achieve their strategic objectives?
Correlational data from existing Aspire schemes has shown a relationship between the stated objectives of the scheme introduction and the achieved outcomes – for example, an improvement in retention statistics for the institution. See the UEL Case Study for more details.
