The Academic Scorecard

Most data presented in the Academic Scorecard come from data previously collected for OSU Strategic Indicators in academic year 1999-2000. Where available, benchmark information is provided. In academic year 1997-98, The Ohio State University selected the following universities as its primary set of benchmark institutions: University of Arizona, University of California-Los Angeles, University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, University of Michigan, University of Minnesota, Pennsylvania State University, University of Texas at Austin, University of Washington, and University of Wisconsin-Madison. This set of benchmark universities is the basis for comparison data reported on the Academic Scorecard. Where institutional benchmark information is unavailable, national averages are reported if available.

The measures on the Academic Scorecard do not represent all specific actions and goals associated with the Academic Plan. As measures are refined, the Academic Scorecard may change and evolve to more closely reflect the specific actions, goals, and resource allocations implemented by The Ohio State University.

Information regarding the sources of data or the calculation of most measures in the Academic Scorecard can be found in the comprehensive appendix to the Strategic Indicators 2000. The Strategic Indicators 2000 document is available for review at:
