We're excited to announce that the original data dictionary has been transcribed into Handshake Analytics!
As a reminder, within Analytics, there are two values available in reporting:
Dimensions - What data do I want? Dimensions are the column descriptors of your table.
Measures - What do I want to do with my data? Measures are the math on top of your data.
Within both Dimensions and Measures are specific fields, which you can use to either filter your results or include in the report as a column.
Next to each field name, you'll be able to hover your mouse pointer over the "i" to the right of the name to see the definition.
Here's an example:
Our field definitions in Handshake were made possible by Nathan Hunsaker, Associate Director for Technology & Data, and Saahithi Budharaju, Data & Analytics Assistant at University of Virginia.
Many thanks for all of their hard work and willingness to share the original data dictionary with us, so our team could transcribe this in Handshake and make it more accessible for all of our users!
