Welcome to COCC's Data Standards Manual

The Central Oregon Community College Data Standards Manual establishes common guidelines, rules, and policies for maintaining shared data items as well as ensuring accuracy and completeness of data within the integrated Banner database system. The manual assists in training new employees, serves as a reference for current employees and establishes an institutional culture of data stewardship.

Data Stewardship is the management and oversight of data assets to help provide users with high-quality data that is easily accessible in a consistent manner.

Effective data stewardship leads to better data.

Better data leads to better decision making, strengthens planning and assessment efforts, increases understanding of students and employees, allows for successful participation in state and federal efforts, strengthens accountability and reduces risk to the institution from weak decision making and inaccurate reporting.
