Interactive Tools, Guides and ServicesDegree Search helps new students understand our majors as well as helps current students find new majors. Students find a major by searching on the name of a major, college, area of interest, campus and/or keyword. For instance, if a student searches for “people,” Degree Search lists all degrees that involve the study of people.
How Tracking WorksSun Devil Tracking helps students understand degree requirements and provides early intervention when students get off track with their degree program.Identify: Sun Devil Tracking focuses on students who initially enroll as full-time freshmen and then it tracks their progress during their first four semesters. It identifies and clearly outlines the critical courses, GPA requirements and milestones that predict success in each major. During orientation, freshmen review their major maps with their advisors in order to make sure they register for the right courses.
Plan: The student uses major maps and progress reports to plan what courses to take each semester. The university ensures there are enough seats so students can enroll in critical and required courses they need, when they need them. The Course Enrollment Dashboard report provides key information the university uses in course planning.Students pull up their Critical Requirement Audit to find out which courses they need to take next.
The Sun Devil Tracking Status report provides advisors and administration a way to track on- and off-track students by academic group.
We continue to improve the process and get students on the right track. Through critical tracking, more than 80% of our students are off to a good start and registered for the right courses.

Bigfoot, Goldilocks, and Moonshots:A Report From the Frontiers of Personalized LearningJosh Jarrett, Deputy Director November 7th, 2012
Thank You“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena…who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” Teddy Roosevelt, April 23, 1910 Josh Jarrett, Deputy Director Education – Postsecondary Success firstname.lastname@example.org www.gatesfoundation.org
