About the SSC
The SSC is a “big data” initiative that analyzes the past decade of student performance at our institution in order to provide predictive analytics related to courses and student attributes.
Through tailored reports, departments are able to assess key trends and insights in student performance and identify opportunities for targeted initiatives, curricular change, or enhanced resources.
It also provides a comprehensive advising platform which applies the historical data analytics to current students in order to provide advisors with detailed insights into their advisees.
As always, when dealing with student information, it is important to keep our FERPA policy in mind. A copy of this policy can be accessed here (PDF).
