What can I do in the PSP?
The self-service Portal allows users, for example, to retrieve reports that show aggregated data on students’ demographics and educational background, success and retention.
Why do I need to access the PSP?
The purpose of the PSP is to provide staff with access to a range of institutional data to inform decision making. This decision making can take the form of practical, immediate operational decisions to long range strategic planning.
