Using Data to Improve Student Outcomes: Learning from Leading Colleges. Education Trust Higher Education Practice Guide #2
Education Trust
All across the country, leaders in colleges and universities are asking the same question: What can we do to improve student success, especially for the low-income students and students of color whose graduation rates often lag behind? This second practice guide: "Using Data to Improve Student Outcomes: Learning from Leading Colleges" was prepared to inform university leaders and others steeped in efforts to raise graduation rates on their campuses. It highlights leading universities that have drastically improved student success by consistently reviewing and using their own data to launch campus-wide initiatives, focusing the entire college community on student success, and removing stubborn obstacles that impede large numbers of low-income students and students of color from graduating college with a degree in hand. [The first practice guide, "Learning from High-Performing and Fast-Gaining Institutions," is available from Education Trust.]
