HEInnovate is not a benchmarking tool between institutions, however you can see an average across all completions and the average of all completions from your institution. However, your self-assessment results are kept private and confidential and your results are only accessible by you – or if you completed the self-assessment as part of a group, then by the group administrator as well - and the site administrators.

This includes an introductory presentation, a document on the eight dimensions of HEInnovate, a training manual, workshop guides and evaluation forms.
