Student Success Analytics Constituent Group
This EDUCAUSE Constituent Group is a forum for those who are actively implementing analytics initiatives aimed at improving student success. The goal of the forum is to share stories and results so that we can benefit from each others’ experiences. While there are no requirements for membership, there are guidelines to describe the scope of these analytics initiatives. First, the initiatives should be implemented in a live/production environment. This means the project is set up to support more than just one or two class sections. Second, the initiative should be using some innovative approach to the analytics process. This process is defined as the aggregation, analysis, and application of data in the higher ed environment. Third, the project should be focused on student success at some point in the student’s higher ed lifecycle (enrollment, program retention, teaching & learning, career placement). While analytics approaches to research, institutional success, or some other non-student area are beneficial, this group is focused on areas that more directly impact student success.
