*Institutional research (IR) at Hallam is defined as:
“a term which describes evidence driven approaches to decision making within organisations. Effective IR requires strategically relevant sources of reliable data which are embedded within the organisation. IR therefore includes research or evaluation conducted by staff or students on their own organisation”
For more information regarding the scope of institutional research/evaluation, specifically involving students, please see the document titled ‘Institutional Research and Evaluation Typology’.
