change. Achieving the Dream National Network What we know: We need to move from this, to Achieving the Dream National Network

Intentionally designed student experience Achieving the Dream Three Pillars INNOVATE to successfully implement, align, and scale cutting edge reforms that increase student success, close achievement gaps, and generate economic benefit for communities. 2.

Student Financial Empowerment Project Achieving the Dream National Network We hope to draw multiplestudent success efforts into a college-wide, cohesive, data informed, well communicated approach to student success. We hope participation in Achieving the Dream will enable us to focus on and invest resources in large scale strategies that effectively promote opportunity and equitable student

success. We seek to grow organizationally in our capacity to ask the right questions, explore the data for insights and apply analytics to steer our efforts to improve student success.

ADVANCING STUDENT SUCCESS THROUGH ACHIEVING THE DREAMS ICAT ICAT Data & Technical Questions Item Does the college evaluate student success initiatives to inform decisionmaking? Does reliable data exist to inform decisions?

Does relevant data exist to inform decision-making? Does the college use benchmarking to identify strategies for improvement and innovation? Valid N % L3 + L4 7,747

73% 7,729 72% 8,432 68% 6,978

66% ICAT Data & Technical Questions Item Valid N % L3 + L4 Do the Information Technology (IT) and Institutional Research (IR) staff collaborate 5,449 to optimize processes for data use?

Does the college use data to examine and improve student outcomes? Are measures of student success defined, documented and used? 62% 8,324 61% 7,668

60% ICAT Data & Technical Questions Have student success technologies been adopted to improve student outcomes? Are data collected along the student experience continuum? Do data analyses yield insights about the past and future? Are data readily accessible to those who need it?

Are student success data translated into meaningful information? 8,348 58% 7,714 55% 7,505

52% 8,159 52% 8,133 49% Data is so widely available and so strategically important

that the scarce thing is the knowledge to extract wisdom from it. That is why statisticians, and database managers are going to be in a fantastic position. Hal Varian Chief Economist, Google The Supply-Demand Challenge Transactional Colleg e

Engagement Colle ge Achieving the Dream Lessons Learned Importance of Institutional Research and Information Technology to collaborate as strategic partners, reduce redundancies, gain efficiencies and combine to lead in building integrated business and data processes and systems.

Lessons Learned Need for data quality and data governance. Only 3% of companies data meets basic quality standards. HBR, 2017 Lessons Learned Need to collect (and organize) data that spans the entire student experience from inquiry through transitions (employment and transfer) and into continuing education and development (alumni giving and reengagement with the college).

All our data is valuable. Even the rawest mundane pieces. ---pg. 104, Big Data Lessons Learned Need to set up systems to collect and organize leading indicators vs. lagging indicators. Lessons Learned Need for unwavering attention and discipline in disaggregating data to identify and consistently monitor equity gaps.

Lessons Learned Need to get data into the hands of decision-makers. Lessons Learned Need for strong data visualization and strong stories woven into a compelling narrative to demonstrate the need for action. Analytics Inspire Action Rethink the Metrics After using certain statistics for so long, it can be easy to

forget why they are used, how they came to be and what goes into them. Smart Baseball, Keith Law Analytics Inspire Action Rethink the Metrics Why has baseball as an industry, including the media covering it and the fans who follow it stuck with outdated statistics for so long? The answer is largely a giant appeal to tradition, a common type fallacious argument that says we should keep doing it this way because we have always done it this way. Baseball has always suffered from a sort of inertia. A game

with a century and a halfs worth of history has a hard time escaping the gravitational pull of the past. Smart Baseball Keith Law Completion becomes an important milestone Harper College three-year graduation rate White: Hispanic/ 26% Total: 25%

Latino: Asian: 24% 20% 16% 14% 11% AfricanAmerican: 11%

new strategic direction Source: 2016 Leah Meyer Austin Award winner: William Rainey Harper College. Completion will remain an essential milestone to demonstrate progress toward family-sustaining wages

Our leading colleges already show consistent improvements in completion For example, in just four years, Harper College saw a ~70 percent improvement in completion, and all but closed

the gap for Latino students 33 Equity remains central Relative odds of six-year completion, compared to white students, Fall 2010 cohort Going forward, we will also track completion for low-income students (e.g., Pell Grant recipients) and other underserved groups, for whom current data are spotty

new strategic direction Sources: Not all ATD colleges have reported data. National Student Clearinghouse data for ATD colleges; Shapiro, D., Dundar, A., Wakhungu, P.K., Yuan, X., Nathan, A. & Hwang, Y. (2016, November). Completing College: A National View of Student Attainment Rates Fall 2010 Cohort (Signature Report No. 12). Herndon, VA: National Student Clearinghouse Research Center. 34 New metrics will better capture diverse student goals Students succeed if they transfer and complete a bachelors or if they complete a credential and earn a family-sustaining wage (e.g., $25,000)

Enrollers (estimated six-year outcomes) Signals of success

College noncompleters: ~51% Completers without family-sustaining wage: ~7% Bachelors completers: ~16%

College completers with familysustaining wage: ~10% Bachelors noncompleters: ~16% Sources: These estimates use data and assumptions from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (1997), NSC data for the Fall 2010 report, NSC data on undergraduate degree earners, and research from Center for Analysis of Postsecondary Education and Employment (CAPSEE) on transfer outcomes. 35 And over time, we will consider even broader impact Examples

Community benefits, such as: Signals of success Greater economic productivity

Higher voting rates Improved health Greater tax revenue

Reduced SNAP or Medicaid expenditures Lower incarceration rates Non-completion success, such as: Credit accumulation leading to wage

gains Skill attainment leading to wage gains 36 Analytics Inspire Action Make Equity Central

Go beyond access and completion gaps and move to looking at program access and completion gaps and labor market value and bachelors degree completion gaps. Drive design of new efforts like pathways with an understanding of these gaps. Analytics Inspire Action Digitize and Datafy Be intentional in quantifying our world to unleash the value of our data.

Three ways to unleash value: Reuse Merge data sets Find twofers Analytics Inspire Action Build the Analytical Futures of Your Students The successful schools, analysts say, will increasingly be

ones that expand their programs to suit the changing needs of employers. Some have already added courses like data science, artificial intelligence, digital marketing and project management. Other steps include tailoring courses for corporations, which need to update the skills of their workers, or develop online courses. As Coding Boot Camps Close, the Field Faces a Reality Check, New York Times, Aug. 24, 2017 Analytics Inspire Action Develop and Enable Data-Informed Leaders on Your Campus Leaders who transform institutions into versions of their better selves

are true artists. . they must be able to see [the institution] within the confines of what already exists---they must be also be able to see what is not---to look beyond the obvious, beyond what is known, beyond the reality of the present to the potential of the future. The Art of Visionary Leadership, John and Suanne Roueche Analytics Inspire Action A Word of Caution

We are more susceptible than we think to the dictatorship of data---that is, to letting the data govern us in ways that may do as much harm as good. The threat is that we will let ourselves be mindlessly bound by the output of our analyses even when we have reasonable grounds for suspecting something is amiss. Or that we will become obsessed with collecting facts and figures for datas sake. Closing Thought

The data can reveal secrets to those with the humility, the willingness, and the tools to listen. Big Data Viktor Mayer-Schnberger and Kenneth Cukier Thank You! #ATDSAS17
