If it matters, measure it. Measuring key performance indicators with honest assessment can highlight areas of opportunity. How is your schedule doing? Are you above or below your peer institutions? Are you utilizing your space effectively? Finding insights in your very own data can point you in the right direction for your unique campus and student body.

Graduation rates have often been thought of as key measure of success for students. The challenge here, is that this measure is a reactive one, meaning by the time this data is available the student has already moved on and little if anything can be done to impact the student's success. Rather, by focusing on student velocity towards a degree and measuring how fast they are progressing towards graduation, we pivot to a proactive approach which give institutions the opportunity to intervene.

You have built out your momentum year and implemented policies to help guide and enforce. But, how are you tracking and measuring students. Are your students making stronger academic decisions and completing their gateway courses?

Monitor Momentum Performance

Purpose First
Students start their college careers by making a purposeful choice in a focus area (Meta Majors) or program. 

Credits in first year

It’s simple, the only way to graduate on-time is to take 30 credits per year.


Credits in Program of Study

Early Momentum is a key indicator of success, students who complete nine credits in a meta major or major are more likely to graduate.


Percent Gateway Courses Completed

Completing gateway Math and English builds early momentum and helps student persistence and student success.


Higher Education Scheduling Index

How are you tracking your schedule? The Higher Education Scheduling Index (HESI™) is a database for course scheduling which tracks 50 variables related to course scheduling patterns and institutional activity of higher education. It includes metrics from a cross section of 4-year public, 4-year private, and 2-year public higher education institutions.

2018 Bending the Curve

Effectively managing the course schedule can improve student retention and ultimately, graduate rates.

Can students get access to the classes they need or are course bottlenecks preventing them? All too often the schedule is rolled over, term after term. Usually, the only variables considered are the number of sections offered in the prior like term and maybe some faculty input. Instead, if you pull multiple data sets into a single system, a much better picture of student demand can be painted.

Space, the final frontier! Not really, but never underestimate its significance.  Frequently, institutions can find great opportunities in how they manage their space. Effectively utilizing the right resources at the right time can provide additional student access and increase operational effectiveness.
