Custom Reports are delivered as a Microsoft Excel file with the exception of the PowerPoint Executive Summary Report. Reports contain aggregated data for an individual institution, a peer group, or a comparison group. Only participating institutions may order reports for their institution. Participating institution refers to schools who were active participants and whose students responded to the survey. In order to maintain institutional privacy, peer group reports contain aggregated data from a minimum of five institutions. For those who are interested in ordering reports based on HERI defined comparison groups, click here for a list of comparison groups associated with each survey.

PowerPoint Executive Summary Report
Please click on a survey for a copy of the National Executive Summary Report
The PowerPoint Executive Summary Report contains graphical representation of select survey results. Users are able to edit all graphs and tables. These reports are available for surveys from 2007 forwards. From 2009, PowerPoint reports are also available as a single-group report or a double-group report. A single-group report shows data for one institution or one comparison group only. A double-group report compares data for two groups per slide (e.g., Sample University and Peer Group, or HERI Comparison Group and Peer Group). Peer Group PowerPoint reports are available for surveys from 2009 and later only. Reports for the 2011 YFCY, DLE, and FAC surveys are not available.

The Custom Peer Report contains the aggregated results in a Microsoft Excel table format which users can conveniently convert to charts and graphs. Participating institutions receive a standard report with two comparison groups as part of the participation fee but may order an additional Custom Peer Report. The report is comprised of the following sub-reports:

  1. Institutional Profile - contains responses to all survey items.
  2. CIRP Construct - provides a unified measure for various academic and educational outcomes.
  3. CIRP Theme - contains theoretically-related survey items.
  4. Longitudinal Profile/Construct - contains responses for survey items that were asked in The Freshman Survey and Your First College Year Survey (TFS/YFCY) or in The Freshman Survey and the College Senior Survey (TFS/CSS). If requesting data for a peer group, this sub-report is only available if five or more institutions participated in both surveys. For a list of institutions that particiapted in our surveys, click here.
  5. HERI Expected Graduation Rate Calculator - uses data from The Freshman Survey to predict expected 4, 5, and 6-year graduation rates.
The Custom Peer Report allow users to select three groups for comparison (i.e., My Institution, Peer Group, and/or Comparison Group). The first group selected will be compared to the second and third groups. For example, the report may be ordered to include these three groups: My Institution, Peer Group, and Comparison Group. Results of the first group, My Institution, will be compared to those of the Peer Group and the Comparison Group. CIRP Construct and CIRP Theme sub-reports are based on first-time, full-time freshmen (TFS and YFCY) or graduating seniors (CSS).

Reports prior to 2009 may be ordered as a Special Report.
