The Characteristics Data Portal (Kenndatenportal, KDP) of the University of Bonn


The Characteristics Data Portal of the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn is a web-based quality management platform that is used to visualize study trajectory data. The portal uses real-time data of a campus management system to generate heat maps that can be used to analyze cohorts, modules and exams. The diagrams provide a comprehensible overview of extensive study data, enable the rapid identification of neuralgic points in study trajectories and allow a variety of assessments, for example the effectiveness of changes to exam regulations.

The BZH has been developing and operating the Characteristics Data Portal since November 2011 within the framework of the BMBF-funded Quality Pact for Teaching. In 2013, the Characteristics Data Portal was featured by the Stifterverband.

Developing query parameters as well as determining specific forms of aggregated data sets takes place by cooperating with colleagues from all faculties to draw upon their expertise. This ensures, among other things, that all subject-specific requirements are sufficiently considered.
