Valdosta State University Actionable Intelligence: Improving Student Success
Retention and graduation rates have long been student success indicators, which occur either at the end of a term or an academic year. By changing the culture on one campus to focus on providing faculty with indicators early in the semester or even before students step foot in class dramatically helped to increase the students’ success. Utilizing technology and predictive analytics to communicate and facilitate strategies not only increase retention and graduation, they give more students an opportunity at a better life. Join us as we review techniques and technologies to provide students a higher chance of academic and life success.
