Administrative Information

Acquisition Information

The Office of Planning and Analysis, University of California, Berkeley; transferred in 1996.

Administrative History

The Office of Institutional Research as established in the 1960s under the then Assistant Chancellor - Budget and Planning to systematize the collection and reporting of institutional data, primarily those pertaining to students. The scope of its activities gradually grew to include data on course scheduling, faculty teaching loads, space utilization and other areas relevant to the instructional program. Planners and annalists were the primary users of these data, and in 1994 the two functions of gathering data and making use of those data were combined into the Office of Planning and Analysis.

Scope and Content

These reports cover three major categories: grades and grade distribution, ethnicity, and faculty workload, primarily for the period 1969 to 1986, although a few cover earlier and later dates. In each of these categories, there are a number of reports formulated with different aggregates and different levels of detail.
There are three additional reports: majors in individual courses, statistics by student status (new, continuing and returning students), and average units taken.
