Predictive Analytics Reporting (PAR) Framework | wcet.wiche.edu | learning analytics | Scoop.it

The Predictive Analytics Reporting (PAR) Framework is a multi-institutional data mining project that brings together 2 year, 4 year, public, proprietary, traditional, and progressive institutions to collaborate on identifying points of student loss and to find effective practices that improve student retention in U.S. higher education. Current efforts focus on removing barriers to student success in online and blended programs. With sixteen WCET member institutions, over 1,700,000 anonymized student records and 8,100,000 institutionally de-identified course level records, the PAR Framework offers educational stakeholders a unique multi-instituional lens for examining dimensions of student success from both unified and contextual perspectives.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, April 12, 2013 1:31 PM

Helping at risk students is a noble goal. Mining data that predicts which students need help based on their online behavior could really be a benefit. This project should improve student retention.  For Colleges and Universities  interested in analytics, this might be the way into meaningful collaboration.
