IPEDS Data Feedback Reports

The Data Feedback Reports provide comparison statistics for the institution and a group of similar institutions, referred to as a comparison group. WPI's comparison group consists of our benchmark peer and aspirant institutions. Beginning 2017, WPI updated the list of benchmark institutions to more closely align with schools that share similar characteristics. The Fall 2017 and newer Data Feedback Reports compare WPI to our updated benchmark institutions.


The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) is a system of interrelated surveys conducted annually by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).

Data collected includes institutional characteristics; institutional prices; admissions; enrollment; student financial aid; degrees and certificates conferred; student persistence and success; and academic libraries, institutional, and human fiscal resources.
