What is the Databank?
The NODA Databank is a collection of
statistical information about Orientation and Transition programs and office
functions from member institutions collected every three to five years. The
last round of data collection for the Databank was collected during the 2014 academic year.
How is the Information Collected?
NODA has used a variety of
mediums to collect data from our membership for this comprehensive
survey. When the Databank begin in 1978, we initially used pen and
paper mailings to the membership. Since then, we have adapted and used
online survey tools such as CampusLabs and most recently Qualtrics to
administer the survey.
How do I Access the Databank?
You can view the results from the last Databank in the NODA Resource Library in NODA Connect. For more information about the NODA Databank, or to request specific information, please fill out this form. Please review section information below prior to submitting your request.
