Equity Insight Metrics for Faculty: Moving Beyond Buzzwords
Too often, institutions rely on lagging performance indicators that analyze students’ past performance, such as graduation rates. Research has now identified a set of leading key indicators in students’ first term and first year that provide evidence of progress and reliably predict future success. These early momentum metrics help institutions monitor the impact of reforms such as math pathways, co-requisites, multiple measures of assessment, and accelerated terms on achieving equitable student outcomes. In this webinar, participants learn how the Postsecondary Data Partnership’s Tableau dashboards assess early momentum metrics, disaggregate data, and provide benchmark comparisons that give instructors the insights needed to serve all students.
