The University provides a number of pre-developed, standard reports which are developed and maintained by the Office of Business Intelligence, OIE, and other functional offices. The information in this section will help you use these standard reports. Pyramid Analytics is the primary reporting platform employed by the Office of Business Intelligence. It is sourced with data from BI's central data warehouse. To gain access to the analytical reports and information, please click here to access the appropriate request form.
In addition to Pyramid Analytics, the Office of Business Intelligence offers a supplemental reporting platform through the Education Advisory Board: Academic Performance Solutions (APS).
The Office of Business Intelligence developed a collection of standard reports which present aggregated admissions information, including various counts by status, yield percentages, term-by-term comparisons, demographics, and geospatial maps. The reports employ various measures and metrics to allow a user to view data at the highest level and also at the granular level to facilitate data-driven decisions.
This report displays the number of applications at the university across multiple terms (by term type). The chart displays the percentage of applications compared to admits, matriculants, and enrolled students.
Current Application Status
This report displays application status by school and program within a term. Includes aggregate counts for the following application statuses: admitted, matriculated, enrolled, deferred, denied, withdrawn, and canceled.
Demographics - Age, Gender, Ethnicity, Religious Preference
Displays the demographic breakdown for applicants, admitted applicants, and enrolled applicants selected by school and other filters.
This report displays applicant locations by permanent address (postal code) in PeopleSoft. Users may expand the chart or map to show country/state/postal code for regional views.
Same-Day Comparatives – Yearly
This report displays the current number of applications compared to the number of applications on the same day one and two years ago.
Same-Day Comparatives – Daily and Weekly
This report displays the current number of applications day over day. In an effort to make the data more easily digestible and viewable on a screen, viewers can see application counts from 1-7 days prior, 14 days prior, 21 days prior, 1 month prior, 2 months prior, 3 months prior, 4 months prior, 5 months prior, and 6 months prior.
The Office of Business Intelligence developed a collection of standard reports which present aggregated enrollment information, including student and unit counts (active and withdrawn) by school, term, location, and demographics. The reports employ various measures and metrics to allow a user to view data at the highest level and also at the granular level to facilitate data-driven decisions.
The report displays the number of officially enrolled students and the number of active and withdrawn units taken by those students within the selected term. By default, any dual degree students will be counted TWICE in the report. To get a "distinct" count, under the Program Primacy Indicator slicer, select "Primary Program." For dual degree students, this will select the Primary Program for the student, which is defined as the program for which the student was last term activated.
Enrollment by School
The two reports display the number of officially enrolled students and the number of active and withdrawn units taken by those within the selected term and school. The second report provides more information by including the current program status (within the selected term) of these students. Note: Dual degree students are counted TWICE in these reports.
Enrollment by Term
This report displays the number of officially enrolled students, active units or withdrawn units within the selected term range, and academic plan(s). Note: Dual degree students are counted TWICE in this report.
Enrollment by Location
The top report displays the number of officially enrolled students broken out by the Location (SITE) codes within the selected term and academic plan(s). These codes are used by Graziadio and GSEP to indicate the location where a student attends classes each term. The bottom report displays the number of officially enrolled students broken out by the Preferred Location (LOCP) codes within the selected term and academic plan(s). These codes are used by Graziadio to indicate a student's preferred class location. NOTE: Dual degree students are counted TWICE in these reports.
Enrollment by Demographics
These reports display the demographic breakdown (gender, ethnicity, citizenship, religious preference) of the officially enrolled students for the selected term and academic plan(s). Note: Dual degree students will be counted TWICE in this report.
The Enrollment & Performance Storyboards display data for several schools including student enrollment in addition to performance data (e.g., GPAs, entrance test scores). Data are duplicated, such that, students with double majors/minors are counted more than once.
The Office of Business Intelligence created a collection of standard reports pertaining to Seaver College's new student melt, which is the population of students who indicate an intent to enroll but fail to enroll (or remain enrolled) in their admit term. The reports include melt percentages and/or counts by term, major, date, various biographical/demographic attributes, and other related metrics.
The reports are currently specific to Seaver College undergraduates (excluding non-degree students).
Melt Rate by Term
This report displays new student melt counts and rates (i.e. percentages) across multiple terms by term type.
Melt Rate by Major
This report displays new student melt counts and rates (i.e. percentages).
Withdrawals by Date
The top report provides a breakdown of the four sub-categories of new students who withdrew from the term - i.e. Withdrawn with Enrollment, Dropped, Never Enrolled, and Applicant Withdrawal (Post-Intent) - by year, month, and day. The bottom report provides a referential view of the prematriculated base population (i.e. All Term Enrolled Indicators count) and where they currently stand in terms of being enrolled or withdrawn.
The Office of Business Intelligence developed a collection of standard reports, which present OIE reporting information such as fifth-week census data, retention and completion, and entering test scores and GPAs. These reports display various high-level (i.e., aggregate) metrics, but also provide the ability to disaggregate and examine data in order to facilitate institutional reporting and data-driven decision-making.
First-Year Undergraduate Retention
This report presents retention information on first-year degree-seeking undergraduates entering in the fall term.
This report presents Seaver College and Pepperdine Graziadio Business School undergraduate graduation rates based on admit term.
This report presents graduation rates for graduate and professional students based on admit term.
The total amount taken out by graduates for the past 10 years. This report is run once a year as an Excel spreadsheet with a combination of PeopleSoft Student Admin and Legacy data.
A product of the Education Advisory Board (EAB), APS is a solution designed to provide academic and financial leaders with department- and course-specific performance and cost data, as well as peer benchmarks, by incorporating PeopleSoft Student, Finance, and Human Resources data.
