REAL-TIME ANALYTICS

Institutions can track student progress real-time with our analytical tools. With this type of reporting mechanism, leadership, faculty and mentors will know quickly where students are having trouble with specific concepts, how often they study and for how long and if they are on pace to finish the course on time. Instructors and mentors can gauge and respond to changes in student performance with confidence and precision. 

If students get behind, Blackboard DevEd instructors help them plan out study time and set a schedule for the rest of the course so that they always have clear goals for achievement. Mentors have access to this information too and are ready to support the instructors’ efforts in keeping students focused on the goal.

The ability to provide the right intervention at the right time takes on new meaning with this type of analytics capability. Those championing student success can take proactive measures to retain developmental education students and help them master their fundamentals. Through our research and course pilots, we saw marked improvement at institutions that took advantage of their enhanced ability to analyze detailed student data to improve student persistence, pacing and ultimately, outcomes.
