The Office of Institutional Research is currently offering training sessions on viewing the information available in Argos related to students. These hands-on training sessions are designed to expand end users knowledge of the reports available in Argos, how to execute these reports, and how to manipulate summary information using OLAP cubes. Classes will be mainly working with student information.
Navigating Argos Reports
A brief overview will be provided concerning logging in to Argos, the types of reports available for use and definition of terms including Quickview, Banded and CSV Export.
Navigating Argos Cubes
OLAP cubes are a powerful way to summarize data in a variety of ways including the ability to apply filters, cross tabulate, drill-down capabilities, and adding functions.
All sessions will be held in a computer lab environment for the opportunity to log in and follow along at your own pace. Please mention the name of a report you might be interested in learning to use in Argos and we will do our best to cover the report in class.
(These courses offer information about viewing reports only. If you are interested in writing reports, sign up for report writing classes from QUDG at: https://www.secure.missouristate.edu/mis/QDUG/Classes.asp)
