Review of benchmarking

We are keeping the way we benchmark data under review, to ensure that our benchmarking approach remains fit for purpose and to increase public confidence in the data and evidence we use to take decisions.

This includes exploring alternative methodologies.

We commissioned Alma Economics to look at alternative benchmarking methodologies that make effective use of large scale datasets and that could be used in a higher education context.

Their report presents an assessment of a broad range of benchmarking methodologies and describes examples of their applications.
