Benefits to Users
            Information...
• IPEDS COOL provides valid and reliable
  information on more postsecondary
  institutions and more types of postsecondary
  institutions than any other source currently
  available.

• Plus, it provides 3 years of price information -
  more than any other source currently
  available.
         ...Invites comparison
• 3 years of price information enables trend analysis:
    Has the price of attending the institution increased in the last 3 years?
    Has it remained fairly constant?

• Students can select a group of schools using shared
  characteristics, and compare price of attendance and
  student financial aid awards across the group

• COOL also provides valid and reliable information on
  comparison institutions to academic planners and decision
  makers.
• COOL can be thought of as being an on-line fact book that is
  publicly available on almost all institutions of higher education.
                                                                        YIELD

     COOL


• The major short-coming of COOL from the administrative
  perspective is that:
    This tool provides only limited access to variables that are available
     within IPEDS.
    The tool invites comparison, but does not allow you to directly compare
     your institution to comparison institutions on key performance indicators.

• As a result, there is a need for a more advanced tool that
  provides access to more IPEDS data and enables direct
  comparisons across multiple institutions.
    NCES provides such a tool for IPEDS data in the
                Peer Analysis System.
              Peer Analysis System
The Peer Analysis System is a web-based tool that is
designed to enable a user to easily retrieve data on a set
of postsecondary institutions of the user’s choice.
   – In addition, the user can compare one institution to a group of
     comparison institutions.
   – The comparison institutions are selected by the user.
   – The system allows the user to generate reports or files using
     selected IPEDS variables of interest.

 COOL have to say
about your Institution?
