What is the difference between a Topline Summary and an Industry Benchmark Report?

What is a Topline Summary?

The Topline Summary is a concise set of tables for all of the closed-ended questions in the survey. This summary only includes the data from your program and is delivered within two weeks of closing your survey. This summary is meant to quickly provide information about your students or alumni.

The Industry Benchmark Report (also known as the Program Roadmap & Market Trends Report) is a full graphical report of your program results compared to industry segments and six self-selected peer programs. This is much more than a comparison to your peer programs. In addition to providing a graphical display of your data not found in the Topline Summary, this report provides the Student/Alumni Loyalty Index, trending, comparisons to industry segments, and Key Driver Analysis. This report is delivered once all programs have submitted data for the current fielding year as well as their peer selections.
