The OfS proposals for regulating student outcomes and the TEF involve using detailed data and analytical evidence to inform their regulatory judgements. The focus of this consultation is on the technical aspect of the outcomes; how the data thresholds and indicators proposed are constructed, presented and interpreted.
This consultation also brings the OfS Access & Participation data dashboards into scope, to establish consistency and alignment of indicators and their parameters across the B3 conditions, TEF and the Access & Participation dashboards (despite differences in their coverage). It is proposed to continue with an update of the latter in Spring 2022, then publish another version later in 2022 following consultation on these measures. TEF data will be updated annually.
