OnDemand Webinar: Data analytics is emerging as a critical tool to support student success professionals.
This webinar will be an encore of a 2018 National Symposium on Student Retention presentation from Starfish and Fayetteville State University.
Institutions need to track their student support services, and key student success metrics, but first they need a strategic plan.
Even though many institutions have excellent institutional research (IR) offices, they may have volumes of institutional and student data but don’t have the tools or processes in place to leverage that data to make decisions at scale.
Often when an institution looks to expand technology to support student success initiatives on campus, they dive straight into the tool, but don’t spend enough time thinking about the goals they want to accomplish with that tool.
