Burrack and Urban present national webinars

Submitted by Frederick Burrack

Fred Burrack, director of assessment, and Chris Urban, assistant director of data analytics, presented a two-part webinar series titled "Visualizing Assessment Data with PowerBI." This series was sponsored by the Association for Institutional Research.

The webinar provided an overview of the assessment processes being integrated across within Kansas State University programs and offered step-by-step guidance to visualize data through PowerBI dashboard. 

Included in the webinar were data modeling in Power BI, importing data, creating automated steps in cleaning data, formatting a data model, transforming data into useful fact and dimension tables, creating measure and visuals, and making everything look professional and intuitively useful.

The Office of Assessment offers training for programs to automate data collection through a CANVAS and reporting through visual dashboard using PowerBI. Visit the Office of Assessment website for more information.
