Learn from Your Students

Your student data can light the way to improved course, persistence, and graduation outcomes. But you need access to the right information to know you’re spending time and money on initiatives that will help your students and enable you to reinvest back into your institution.

With our spectrum of institution-specific analytics, you can provide administrators and student success leaders with context to easily understand your student data, to segment and compare investment opportunities, and to develop action plans to help students succeed.

What Works Best?

Learning from student data is about more than best practices. It’s about anticipating barriers for your specific students and designing programs to serve them.

Without sophisticated analytic tools, higher ed leaders are faced with difficult decisions when it comes to improving student success:



They can try to evaluate student interventions using old data



They can run expensive studies and pilots



They can try optimizing initiatives without clear, actionable data



They can keep doing more of the same without knowing the impact of their actions

Most institutions don’t have the time, money, resources, or runway for options 1, 2, or 3. So they choose option 4 by default—and let the status quo continue.

The Outcomes You Want

Cindy Pemberton
Deputy Provost
University of Missouri-Kansas City

“It’s hard for institutions to stop engaging in practices that have long been part of their history and culture. The only way to do this is to have clarity around what’s really working, and what’s not. Civitas Learning is now a foundational part of how we have these conversations about our students.”

William Wagnor
Director, Integration Services
Monroe Community College

“We were surprised by the differences across student segments. It was a level of analysis our team was unable to drill into prior to Impact.”
