Interested in what’s trending in education? Here are a few highlights from recent education news.
Much attention has been paid recently to the power of advanced analytics services and technologies to aggregate, score and evaluate students. These services collect and streamline disparate institutional data sources into more manageable dashboards. In the excitement over the increased granularity and improved view into students’ activities and behaviour now available to universities, an important question is often left unanswered: how should institutions act on this newly comprehensible information?
PAR Framework, a national membership collaborative that helps higher ed institutions and systems use data to improve retention and postsecondary success, announces the release of a new paper that documents opportunities to help post-traditional students succeed.
Hobsons, the leading provider of college and career readiness, enrollment management, and student success solutions, today announced the acquisition of the Predictive Analytics Reporting (PAR) Framework, Inc. PAR, a national membership collaborative, helps colleges, universities, and higher education systems use data to improve retention and postsecondary success.
By 2020, 65 percent of all jobs in the United States will require a postsecondary education, yet too many students begin their postsecondary journey without a clear path to completion, and colleges and universities struggle to find which interventions will lead to the best student outcomes. Why do students struggle to meet their goals? Too often, institutions fail to provide meaningful, holistic support to help students reach their educational goals and they lack the insight needed to determine what’s working and what’s not.
