SHEEO Releases Strong Foundations 2018: The State of State Postsecondary Data Systems

Since 2010, the State Higher Education Executive Officers Association (SHEEO) has periodically administered the Strong Foundations survey, which documents the content, structure, and effective use of state postsecondary student unit record systems (PSURSs). This report highlights the results of the fourth administration of the survey, conducted in 2018.

The most recent report highlights states’ abilities to calculate performance metrics, an examination of which educational sectors are covered by these systems, and an analysis of benchmark privacy and security practices.
