Here in IRAP we get people the evidence they need to be informed when they make decisions, plan, and design. IRAP aims to responsively and proactively provide accurate and objective information to stakeholders across campus.

What other things does IRAP do?

Well, we’re most proud of mentoring IRAP interns—Beloit students who are interested in careers in data science, stats, consulting, or grad school. We teach them to develop survey questions, code Stata, and present findings while they teach us about the student experience and the story behind the latest edition of the Round Table. But, most of the time we:

  • Perform statistical and policy analyses to inform college decision-making processes, to support long-range planning, and to provide public accountability.
  • Produce official institutional statistics.
  • Respond to external requests for information from state and federal governments, other agencies and consortia, and interested parties who need up-to-date information related to college processes and academic programs.
  • Advise institutional, departmental, and programmatic inquiry surrounding student learning outcomes and program effectiveness.
