Keeping our students on the road to graduation

Pathfinder is a predictive modeling tool that gives advisors information on individual students’ likelihood to graduate in a wide range of majors on campus. Predictions are generated by comparing key academic factors for each student against historical patterns of success and failure. Mining a decade of course data we can now determine which courses are the best markers for success or failure in a particular major, and can suggest a more appropriate major for a specific student in a specific academic situation. A pilot program was launched in Spring 2014 with Architecture, Visual Communication Design, Undergraduate Studies and Ashtabula Campus. An institutional roll-out plan is being developed for a full launch in Fall 2014.
