Open Forum on Student Success: Who We are and Where We are Going

University of Alaska Anchorage has become a member of the Student Success Collaborative, a partnership that will provide data analysis to university administrators about trends in students’ academic performance. UAA is one of more than 450 universities in the country participating in the cohort.

The Student Success Collaborative is a “big data” initiative that analyzes the past decade of student performance at UAA. The goal is to use data analysis to identify courses where students tend to get stuck or slowed down on their way to graduation, and to find the pathways and support services that most enable a student to be successful. If administrators and deans can see where groups of students are having challenges in majors programs, they can take steps to improve UAA’s graduation rates.

The program also provides information that will enable advisors to help students choose their majors more quickly. By looking at where other students who have taken similar courses succeeded, advisors can suggest similar majors or courses. Also, advisors will be able to see if students are having problems progressing in their major and offer help before students fall too far behind.
