Reporting and Data Analytics Repository (RaDAR)
What is the RaDAR Project?
RaDAR provides a central repository for the campus community to access relevant data in a variety of formats. The RaDAR site will provide a single point of entry to validated self-service reports and analyses of campus data.
Why are we focusing on a reporting solution for the campus?
As a data informed institution, California State University San Marcos requires a coherent and consolidated system to satisfy the needs of campus data aggregation, reporting, analysis, and delivery. To this end the campus has the goal of delivering a solution that satisfies these requirements in a timely fashion and incorporates necessary security, scalability, and usability.
Who determines what reports should be included in RaDAR?
The Decision Support Group, a Business Intelligence and Institutional Planning & Analysis collaborative, reviews all data requests and determines the appropriate reporting solution. In some cases, the Decision Support Group will not have the necessary access or subject matter expertise to fulfill a request, and may refer your request to other units as appropriate.
How will reports and data be secured?
RaDAR reports that contain confidential and sensitive data require users to log in using their network user id and password to access the data. Access to data is based on legitimate educational interest or business need, and subject to campus data governance policy.
How do I request data or reports for my specific needs?
Use the Data Request page on the left menu navigation to submit a new data request. Note that much of the data needed on a daily basis is already available to the campus community through a variety of self-service resources, including RaDAR and the Institutional Planning & Analysis website. Please review available reports before submitting a request for new data.
Whom do I contact if I need to report an issue or have further questions about an existing report in RaDAR?
Please submit a help ticket, and your question or issue will be relayed to the Decision Support Group.
