Constructing student outcome and experience indicators for use in OfS regulation
Our proposals for regulating student outcomes and the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) involve using detailed data and analytical evidence to inform our regulatory judgements.
This consultation sets out proposals for the construction, presentation and interpretation of the data comprising that evidence base, which will also be used in access and participation data dashboards.

Supporting information and data dashboards
We have provided a range of supporting information:
View the data dashboards
- the data analysis which is referred to by some of our consultation proposals
- interactive data dashboards which allow users to explore our data analysis
- interactive data dashboards and data workbooks which illustrate the presentation of the student outcome and experience indicators we are proposing to publish each year
- the data definitions that we apply to student-level data sets, and the statistical methods we use in the construction of our proposed indicators. These technical documents aim to help data and statistics practitioners understand our application of the proposed approach.
We have released illustrative, provider-level data to individual providers on the OfS portal. Each provider has access to its own data only, to provide opportunities for them to consider the impact of our consultation proposals on their own student data. Information about these data resources, and details of how to access them, have been shared with each head of provider or other accountable officer.
