The Spring and Fall 2020 Data Dashboard is now live. Click here to view.
Funded by a generous donation from ECMC Foundation, C2I is developing a COVID-19 data dashboard that is now ready for public use. The Dashboard includes data on both Spring 2020 and Fall 2020 transitions.
Starting July 21st, the Data Dashboard includes Fall 2020 reopening plans classified into the following descriptions:
- Fully In person – Classes will exclusively be conducted in person
- Primarily in person, some courses just online – Classes will be mainly conducted in person with certain exceptions for online delivery
- Fully online no students on campus – Classes will only be conducted online, residence halls closed
- Fully online with at least some students on campus – Classes will only be allowed online, residence halls open
- Primarily online, some courses just in person – Classes will be taught primarily online with the exception of some courses. Example: allowing classes with lab components to meet in person
- Primarily online with delayed in-person start – Campus intends to be primarily in-person, but has delayed in-person instruction for the time being. Online instruction will continue until that time.
- Hybrid and/or Hyflex teaching – Professors are allowed to decide how to teach their course on a rolling basis. Some weeks/days online, some weeks/day in person and so on
- Simultaneous teaching – Professors will be required to teach their courses online and in person, at the same time
- Professor’s choice – The institution has allowed their professors to pick their method of academic delivery
- TBD – No announcement has been made about Fall 2020 instruction
- No COVID-19 mentions – Some institutions do not have COVID-19 updates available on their websites, these tend to be religiously aligned or special-mission institutions.
- Some variety of methods, non specific plan – Institutions provide a list of general intentions but do not have a clear plan or a clear distribution of classes available by mode of instruction.
- Closed – The institution has shut its doors since the last IPEDS update.
- Already an online institution – The institution already provided all courses online, prior to March 2020.
- Other – A mode of instruction not listed among those above.
Descriptions of these classifications can be found on our correction form here. If you disagree with C2i’s classification of an institution’s plan, please fill out the correction form or email firstname.lastname@example.org and someone from the C2i team will respond to you as quickly as possible.
The dashboard allows users to condition on institution type, infrastructure, enrollment, endowment size, and several variables pertaining to athletics. Users are able to hone in on a given institution’s peer institutions to allow benchmarking.
The Dashboard also includes data on four-year public and non-profit colleges for every day in the month of March 2020. From March 6th to March 12th nearly 2/3rds of all four-year institutions announced plans to transition online; our dashboard will allow for researchers, policymakers, students and their families, and administrators to understand how colleges made those decisions.
The Dashboard was developed by Project PRONTO++ (PRoductive ONline TOols), a group of student data scientists and programmers, led by C2i Co-PI and Kimbrough Professor of Mathematics Laurie Heyer, who use their skills to solve real-world problems.
