Time: 7:00 am - 8:00 am (Eastern Time)

Are you attending EDUCAUSE? Join us for breakfast and embrace the power of predictive analytics! Universities are turning to new data sources to identify those students who need a nudge toward success. The promise of predictive analytics in higher education continues to entice—for good reason. It can change student and University outcomes.

In this discussion, we will look at why most institutions are struggling to leverage new and traditional data points they gather about students, let alone the other data sources needed to ensure actionable insights around student attraction, progression, and retention. Secondly, it’s almost impossible to buy an effective packaged solution off the shelf when a data mix that works at one school may not be relevant at another. We’ll discuss what options are available. Finally, the creepiness factor—just how intrusive can schools be in tracking the actions of their students and how do we protect student level data?

Come meet our Director of Business Analytics, Hillary Delabar, over breakfast and learn how powerful predictive analytics can benefit your educational institution!
