Graphical Program Summary (GPS) Report
The GPS report creates peer groups based on a combination of core data points from the VSE survey and additional appended variables. An algorithm is used to select the 10 institutions most like yours based on data for the most recent fiscal year. While your AMAtlas peers may not necessarily be your academic or aspirational peer group, we believe that understanding your own trends alongside those most like your institution can provide actionable insight. GPS Reports will be provided free to post-secondary institutions who complete the VSE Survey initially, with plans to release them in other regions and independent schools in the future.
CASE can also provide your institution with a Made-to-Order version of the GPS report that is interactive and based on 10 years of survey results. The Made-to-Order GPS Report allows your institution to select up to 20 peers or apply the algorithm noted above. The purchase of this report comes with a 60-minute review call.
