The Educational Advisory Board has partnered with progressive institutions to improve student success on college campuses, and Northern Illinois University is one of them. The Student Success Collaborative combines technology, research, and predictive analytics to help institutions positively inflect outcomes with at-risk and off-path students (Educational Advisory Board, 2012). The collaborative provides NIU advisors and other pertinent departments with a software system that allows them to:
Identify and prioritize students needing extra assistance in critical foundational coursework
Pull forward difficult conversations with students who may be at-risk in their chosen degree
Simplify intervention by aggregating previously disparate data into a 360-view of student health
Evaluate and compare alternative major decisions based on predicted academic performance
