You have already collected valuable involvement data that can be leveraged within your Baseline site by using Panels. This data will give you the opportunity to assess learning as a result of your programming, learn how your involved students compare to your less involved students, and better understand the impact of your co-curricular experiences.
For further information of how to create and utilize panels, review our Baseline Panels article.
Panels can pull in the following data sets-
- Event Attendance
- Positions Held
To create a panel from your Engage data, you will need the system role of “Engage Panels” within Baseline. For further explanation of granting system roles in Baseline, refer to our User System Roles Available within Baseline Support article.
Navigate to your “Panels” Tab. From here, click on “New Panel” to reveal a drop down. In addition to creating a panel from Email/External ID, you’ll be able to create a panel from “Event Attendance” or “Positions Held”
Creating a Panel from your Event Attendance data allows you to gather attendees of either one or multiple events. This panel can be used to either serve as a recipient list of a survey or filter your existing survey data. Consider using your attendance-based panel to administer post-event surveys or conduct cross project reporting to measure how attendees of your events compare to non-attendees.
To create a panel, first name your panel based on what attendance you are choosing to pull in as well as a description. It is recommended to be as specific as possible so that any users in the site will be able to discern this panel from others.
Following this, you will need to determine the logic of your panel using the “ANY” and “ALL” options. By choosing “ALL” you are creating a panel that will include only attendees who have attended all the selected events. By choosing “ANY” you are pulling in every participant that has attended at least one event from the selected events.
Next, you will search for the events in which you would like to pull attendance from. This section will allow you to search through all events that are in your Engage site and choose which event attendance you would like to populate into your panel. You will be able to filter this list by either searching for word in an event title, identifying a date range, or by the type of event. When selecting events, take note of the “Attn.” column to see if the event you have selected has collected attendance.
Creating a panel based on students who hold specific positions in your Engage site allows you to not only compare the experience of students at varied levels of involvement, but also assess your involved students to learn more about their unique experiences.
To create a panel, first name your panel based on what positions you are choosing to pull in as well as a description. It is recommended to be as specific as possible so that any users in the site will be able to discern this panel from others.
Following this, you will need to determine the logic of your panel using the “ANY” and “ALL” options. By choosing “ANY” you are creating a panel that will include individuals who have held any of the selected positions. By choosing “ALL” you are only pulling in individuals who have held every position selected.
Next, you can search through all available positions that have been created in your Engage site and select which you would like to populate into your Panel. You can either search for a key word that exists in your position name or sort by any of the available columns.
Finally, you can further filter users you have pulled in based on when they held the identified positions. You’ll need to indicate if you would like to include users that currently hold the position(s), held the selected position(s) at any point in time, or held the selected position(s) at any point during a specific date range. Next, you have an optional step of only including users based on Organization Types or Categories that exist in Engage.
