Research and Analysis


The Division of Research and Analysis is the data, reporting, and research department of the Commission. Consisting of researchers and data programmers, the division is responsible for collecting data from West Virginia public postsecondary institutions (and to a smaller extent private non-profit institutions) for use in annual statutory reporting to the West Virginia Legislature, providing information to education stakeholders and the public, and conducting research to inform the work of the Commission and the Council for Community and Technical College Education. The Division also facilitates the submission of West Virginia postsecondary data to external entities such as the federal government and the Southern Regional Education Board.

Other division initiatives include the state P20 longitudinal data system, development and implementation of the system’s new master plan, and scholarly papers to inform educational practices in the state.
