The Technical College System of Georgia System Office is pleased to announce that we will host the 2019 Student Data Summit conference on September 25-27 at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel and Convention Center.
The Student Data Summit is a data-focused conference for college staff who enter, report on, and analyze student data. Conference programming is under development but will include an overview of TCSG student data systems as well as targeted content for peer groups. Conference sessions will focus on data standards, functional usage and data validation. We will also have general sessions on data handling, privacy and security. Participants will gain a better understanding of systems that are used to collect and report student data. Peer group sessions will help staff answer the following questions:
- How do I enter data into Banner?
- What data are collected by TCSG?
- Why are data standards important?
- When are the reporting deadlines?
- Where do I find student data reports?
- Which reports should I use?
Additional information about the conference will be posted to this site as it becomes available.
