Academic Performance Solutions (APS)

Academic Performance Solutions (APS) is a web-based tool that brings together student, course, HR and financial data sets, as well as provides peer benchmarking against other institutions in the growing collaborative. APS is designed to give academic leaders access to critical data to inform resource allocation decisions.

Through use of APS we will be able to achieve many important goals such as:

  • Optimizing course offerings to reduce underutilized resources
  • Prioritizing investments in areas that will have the greatest impact on student progress, such as reducing bottlenecks
  • Illuminating departments that are operating above or below benchmark levels
