The datasets from the 2008 project are designed to enable DASSH members to interrogate the data in response to their own needs. They are offered in an excel spreadsheet format as both raw data and as pivot tables.

This data set provides an overview of the programs that were investigated during this project. It is made available as a pivot table that allows for analysis of availability in 2008, student numbers 2001- 2006, type of institution, state, institution and program name.
Work integrated learning as a part of an arts degree is gradually increasing in importance as a part of the learning activities in the Arts programs. In addition to industry related work experience, students are often encouraged to be involved in society or community-based programs. This dataset records the work integrated learning courses that are available to Arts students.
Graduate attributes for the programs were collected from informants, via program websites and from program reviews or publicity materials. A single dataset was developed which traces the graduate attributes used by Institutions, Faculties, programs and disciplines.
Opportunities for international exchange were recorded and are made available in a pivot table.
Reports from the first round of the AUQA were examined and any comments, recommendations and commendations for any features that might be identified as related to Arts programs were noted and collated into a dataset.
Sequences of study were examined to see what disciplines or subject areas form Bachelor of Arts programs. A separate worksheet lists the core or required programs identified. All data is available as a pivot table to facilitate local analysis.
Existing projects that are funded either under ALTC funding or via institutional funds that may have some impact on Arts programs were collated into a table that uses Excel's Autofilter feature. It is possible to sort the data by project title, lead institution, project date, funding body, grant amount, expected project outcomes, project details, project leader and contact details, and link to project URL.
DEST data on programs that fit the definition of the BA project have been made available in pivot table format. Data is available by program name across state, institution, type and mode of attendance, age and gender 2001 - 2006.
Data from the Graduate Destinations Survey (GDS) for Arts students is available for analysis according to sector, employer, full-time and part-time employment, and salary

Data from the Course Experience Questionnaire (CEQ) for Arts students is available for analysis using pivot tables. Students' overall satisfaction with their program as measured by the Course Experience Questionnaire Overall Satisfaction Question; Students' satisfaction with their generic skill development as provided by their program and the overall satisfaction of Arts students versus other students in the Society and Culture field of study as measured by the Course Experience Questionnaire Overall Satisfaction Question.
