  • Analytics Maturity LevelsInformation Value Insight
  • Analytics: Big Data (R2) Multiple Levels of Reporting with Drill-Down Filters Extensive Data Domains Aggregates and Trends Over Time
  • Big Data: Data Sets• Enrollments. The enrollment data mart tracks user enrollments and withdrawals across one or more organizations.• Competencies. The competencies data mart tracks competencies, learning objectives, activities and rubrics by user, department, program, institution, and system.• User Logins. The user access data mart tracks the number of user logins/distinct sessions over a period of time. It is a very simple way of tracking student patterns of accessing the system.• Content and Tool Access. The module data mart tracks content access & tool usage.• Web Analytics. The web analytics data marts track internet statistics such as bandwidth usage, geographical location, and browser types.• Test and Quizzes. The quizzing data mart tracks quiz, test, and survey results, including measuring of quiz effectiveness.• Grades. The grades data mart tracks grades at student, course, department or school level, including filtering by grade ranges or date ranges.

  • Predictive Domains Multiple Semantic Units
  • Student Success System (S3)SSS is an Early Intervention System. It empower institutions with predictiveanalytics tools for improving student success, retention, completion, andgraduation rates.Highlights– Course-specific predictions of student success and risk levels– Success index that enables comparison of key success indicators– Innovative data visualizations– Case history and intervention managementAvailabilityGeneral Availability in 2013. (Pilot project starting Oct. 2012)
  • Student Success System
  • Powerful Reporting and Analysis Personalized Detailed analysis lets you drill assessment down to individual classesIntervention } }management In-depthSuccessindicators } reporting Innovative data visualizations
  • Challenges and RemediesChallenges for Institutions Student Success System RemedyInability to predict, and consequently improve student Predictive modeling identifies at-risk students basedsuccess, retention, graduation, and completion rates on engagement, performance, and profile dataLimited resources to create personalized intervention Visualizations and statistical indicators provideplans diagnostic insights to help design individualized interventionsLack of data correlating engagement with success Analyze student engagement patterns and effects on academic successInability to identify isolated students Visualize social network patterns based on discussion data, to improve social learning
  • Value to Institutions and Students• Predictive analytics provides early identification of at-risk students enabling instructors to identify and understand where issues are and create appropriate resolution plans to address the problem• Graduation and retention rates are increased when at-risk students are identified early on the process and supported throughout the term with informed counter-tactics
  • Summary – Student Success System at a Glance Institution Challenges Description of SSS • Improving Student Success • Early Intervention System driven by • Identifying academically at-risk, dis- advanced predictive analysis and data engaged or isolated students visualization to identify at-risk students • Increasing retention, completion, and and intervene to improve their retention, graduation Rates completion, graduation and success rates. Student Success System Value Ideal Customer Profile • Easily identify at-risk students, and • Institutions looking to empower understand where the issues lie • Design and implement individualized instructors with predictive analytics intervention programs to improve student success. • Improve institutional effectiveness • Increase student success
