Naviance by Hobsons Launches Naviance Insights to Unlock College Outcomes
Naviance Insights Illuminates the Impact of College Readiness Initiatives
ARLINGTON, VA - May 22, 2018 - Education technology leader Hobsons recently announced the release of Naviance Insights, a new analytics solution designed to track and analyze college outcomes. By providing visibility into various factors that impact college success, Naviance Insights enables districts to build a college readiness strategy on proven results.
College outcomes are a key measure of student success for districts, schools, and state education agencies - but can be time consuming and difficult to get reliable, actionable data. Naviance Insights provides districts access to actionable data to analyze outcomes and inform their strategy.
“It’s not always easy to determine the impact that college readiness programs have on students’ success,” said Eugene Robinson, Manager of Postsecondary Initiatives at Chicago Public Schools. “Naviance Insights allows me - as well as counselors - to do this, right in Naviance, in a way that wasn’t possible before.”
Naviance Insights enables more than 13,000 schools and districts in the United States to analyze their graduates’ college outcomes by ethnicity, gender, test scores, high school in the district, and more. Key outcomes available to track, analyze and report include:
- College application rates
- College acceptance rates
- College enrollment rates
- College persistence and completion rates
Understanding these outcomes will enable administrators to direct resources towards the most effective readiness programs.
“We are proud to offer Naviance Insights and enable educators to access valuable college outcomes data,” said Monica Morrell, General Manager of Naviance. “Our vision is to help educators determine which programs are preparing their students for their postsecondary future and help them to focus on what works best. ”
The Outcomes Dashboard within Naviance Insights is included with every Naviance subscription and allows educators to track key college outcomes, including the number of students who have applied to 2- or 4-year colleges, students who have been accepted to at least one college, and students who have enrolled in college the first year after high school graduation. Year-over-year results enable educators to identify college outcome trends, and on-track metrics enable staff to determine if current students are ahead or behind previous classes in key outcomes.
This summer, Naviance by Hobsons will release Naviance Insights Premium, consisting of the Analysis and Comparison Dashboards. Naviance Insights Premium will be available to Naviance subscribers for an additional fee, and will enable educators to analyze 17 research-backed variables that influence their students’ college outcomes. With custom analysis of student groups, educators are able to analyze the factors that influence success for different student populations.
