ASR to Showcase Student Success Analytics at AIR in Denver

Apr 29, 2015

ASR announced today its Bronze level sponsorship of the Association of Institutional Researchers (AIR) conference to be held May 26-29 in Denver, Colorado. At the conference ASR will be demonstrating its "Student Success Analytics" (SSA) solution – a comprehensive data warehouse and analytics approach to help institutions measure, manage, and distribute critical data and visualizations. ASR has developed this solution based on years of real-world application and experience with numerous institutions of higher education. SSA enables institutions to better analyze and determine factors related to enrollment; retention; student, course, and faculty success; and course and faculty utilization. The solution contains over 60 student and curricular dimensional attributes as well as numerous performance measures including enrollment (duplicated/unduplicated), full-time student equivalent (FTE/FTSE/WSCH), retention rate, graduation rate, passing and success rates, and many more. SSA provides:

  • Comparative Analysis: Track your progress against goals by comparing any two time periods (or more), including today vs. yesterday, term-over-term, year- over-year, etc.
  • Analysis by age group, program, or other dimension: Discover what's working – and what's not. Analyze by numerous dimensions of the student or course and academic hierarchy.
  • Improve ability to make predictions: Identify at-risk students before they drop out, or declining enrollments before they happen. The data model can be used to create predictive analysis models which can then be incorporated back into actionable dashboards to alert faculty, support staff, and leadership.
  • StreamlineRegulatory Reporting – Automate regulatory and community initiative reporting including Voluntary Framework for Accountability (VFA), Achieving the Dream (ATD), Complete College America (CCA), Common Data Set, State Reporting, and more.

Using a combination of templates and customization to meet each institution's specific needs, ASR accelerates the implementation of a complete data warehouse and analytics solution regardless of the reporting tools or Student Information System in place.
