Data Prioritizing

Weber State uses a process for prioritizing data projects to ensure the university analytic resources are efficiently and effectively leveraged. All new projects, once appropriately vetted, will be prioritized along with continued maintenance and emergency projects. Prioritized projects will be assigned to be completed as quickly as possible, recognizing the variability in time and resources needed for completion. Contact with questions.

Prioritization Criteria

The Data Prioritizing Committee, which is made up of various campus data representatives, sets the criteria for project prioritization during each committee session based on two dimensions of assessment:

  • Impact on the Campus: Addresses the project's potential number of data users and the value or significance of the project for achieving or assessing strategic goals. Ties to the university, divisional, or unit strategic plan will be a consideration for the impact of a project.
  • Feasibility of Project: Address the project's level of challenge of collecting, preparing, or displaying the data for the project and/or the likelihood of success in estimating the cost of completing the project in terms of time and resources.

Data Prioritizing Committee

The Data Prioritizing Committee meets monthly to prioritize and re-prioritize requests submitted through the data portal. The committee is chaired by UDAC data and communication manager, and includes representation of each division, faculty senate and staff advisory committee. Meetings are open to the campus committee.
