Reports Available

QDP Services produce a comprehensive set of reports for every survey as standard. This "standard set" is tailored to each individual survey and to each Customer's needs so that the reporting is able to truely inform and give a robust and reliable view of the data collected.

It would typically contain:

  • Easy to understand graphical reports; produced for each course and for every level of the management structure.
  • Internal benchmarks; available for quick comparison of areas within your provider. For example ethnicities, programme areas or Sector Subject areas.
  • League tables; to identify top performers or quickly locate areas causing concern.
  • External benchmark; reports to allow ready comparison of your learners with similar types, ages, ethnicities etc. Benchmarks are also available for your type of provider, your LSC region etc.
  • Distance travelled; to show the impact changes have made on the learners view. These can be shown year on year or from inspection to inspection.
  • Management Summary; illustrative report designed to provide a quick overview using statistical methods only to provide a possible start point for analysis. The data presented inside the report indicates areas of strength and weakness within your organisation.
  • Issue Comparison; provides a clear and defining method of comparing a particular issue(s) within a particular group(s) e.g. ‘How well do learners achieve’ among all Age groups, all Ethnicity groups and all Schools within the Management Structure as shown on our example report.

In addition to the standard set reports we are available to compare your survey results with the National Student Satisfaction Survey. Graphical reports can also be produced in all UK inspection framework orders, by the Every Child Matters framework and where appropriate National Learner Surveys.
The reports can be used at all levels within your organisation.
