SUPPORTING TIMELY PROGRESS TO DEGREE IN UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS, Feb 24, 12n (Register here)
Understanding and improving student progress and degree completion is more important than ever. This session will take a data- and analysis-focused approach to improving timely degree completion in undergraduate programs. We will feature analytical and data resources that support program and curriculum delivery, such as trends in enrollment and degrees, common courses, grade and D/F/Drop rate analysis, and data on alumni outcomes. We will introduce concepts related to the student path through the curriculum (i.e., curricular analytics), including the longest path, number of long paths, bottleneck courses, pinch-point courses, the role of requisites, and overall curricular complexity. We will discuss hidden or unintended “speed bumps,” such as complex admissions requirements, time of declaration, and enrollment holds. And finally, we will discuss ways to “smooth the path,” such as credit-by-exam and the use of Guide content.
