IPORT is a web-based application that provides access to summarized and detail data that is stored in the university data warehouse, such as reports on enrollment, admissions, grades, graduation, retention, curriculum, faculty teaching duties and student housing. This reporting system provides decision-makers with instant access to historical data and makes it easy to analyze the data and recognize trends over a given span of time. IPORT displays data from the Spring semester 2005 until the present, with data for the current semester being refreshed nightly until the midpoint of the term.
Most of the data are displayed in an aggregated format and is available to the public. However, some reports are restricted to GSU faculty and staff. Users who need detailed, non-aggregated information may sign in to IPORT and view this information, provided they have appropriate data steward authorization. To view detail or restricted data, faculty and staff must log in with their campus IDs and passwords. GSU students and visitors are not permitted to login. When accessing worksheets, which contains detail data, there is an additional layer of security that requires approved user access to the subject area to view or to download worksheets.
