Student Success Analytics

What we do

Student Success Analytics, a partnership between the Office of Undergraduate Education and the Office of Information Technology, provides predictive modeling software that enables us to convert existing course data into meaningful, actionable insights to proactively support our students and their success. It is also an easy-to-use source of data about courses taught at CU Boulder.

This service is built upon Civitas Learning’s institution-specific models that quantify the likelihood of student persistence - both individually and across student groups. These models power the Illume courses tool that allows users to investigate persistence from a variety of perspectives, providing answers to questions including: 

  • Which students should be prioritized for a student success intervention?
  • Which courses on campus are most correlated with student persistence? 
  • How are institutional graduation and retention rates impacted by individual courses? 

We partner with student success professionals across campus and direct campus-wide student success initiatives. We are familiar with campus data and have connections with our colleagues in the Office of Data Analytics, as well as other campus data providers. As such, we are often able to incorporate data from other campus systems in our work or direct our partners to the department or system with data to answer their questions.
