In response to questions raised at the Undergraduate Education/Active and Engaged Learning Updates, held as part of the Strategic Plan Academic Meetings (hosted by Vice Provost Judy Stepan-Norris and Michael Dennin), we are excited to announce that the latest Comprehensive Analytics for Student Success (COMPASS) reports specifically for FACULTY are coming soon, so be on the lookout for updates.
- What is COMPASS? The COMPASS Initiative provides timely data on undergraduate student success to academic advising staff and others around campus who help students succeed.
- The aim is to use data collection, analysis, measurement, and reporting to inform how to improve retention, time to degree, and completion rates, identify and remediate risk factors, and provide targeted outreach and intervention to various student populations.
- Why is COMPASS important? COMPASS empowers campus academic advisors, student support professionals, and others on campus to explore and intervene using a comprehensive, secure set of student data.COMPASS users can then take cues from the data and reach out to students as appropriate. For example, a very driven student’s data might prompt an advisor to match them to upcoming scholarship opportunities and academic possibilities.
- Who gets access to the COMPASS reports? Currently advising and student support staff have access to COMPASS reporting. Faculty will have access to select aggregate student data reports that will roll out over the coming academic year. Information will be distributed in follow-up emails from the Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning and the COMPASS team.
- Who should I go to with questions about COMPASS? COMPASScollaborates with the Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning to get resources directly into the hands of instructors. If you have questions about the goals of COMPASS or the overall project, please contact the Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching & Learning at firstname.lastname@example.org.
