Your stake indexing coordinator has an extra tab that allows access to that information. It's not available to the general membership.
So we can better help you, please edit your Profile to include your general location.

That is correct. Stake indexing directors have administrative tools under that extra tab at indexing.familysearch.org.

Last week at my FHC, I saw a stake indexing director for one of the stakes come in and do some work there, and do a print run of those very reports. A page can be printed by the indexing director for each ward in the stake. Those reports are often given to bishops and other leaders on a 'need to know' basis.

A member always has access to his or her own indexing statistics, that is built into the program, there are persoanl goal-setting and tracking tools available within the software the indexer downloads.

The stake indexing director can also download these reports in a CSV format, which can facilitate additional reporting, graphs, etc., if they want to do some additional spreadsheet work.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

Is there no place that a bishop can look them up? Is the Stake Indexing Coordinator the only one who can do that?

That is generally correct. The stake indexing director is usually an Admin in the indexing system. If the stake has another Admin (often a backup), that person can also get the report.

Indexing is administered at the stake level, not the ward level, so the bishop has no direct stewardship in this area. So the stake indexing director (or his/her assistant) can run indexing reports, but not the bishop.

However, it's entirely appropriate for the stake indexing director to communicate with a bishop regarding his ward's indexing activities. They just need to work out the lines of communication and I'm sure the bishop can get the information he needs.
