[ONLINE] - How You Say It Matters

Communicating Predictive Analytics Findings to Students
Event

Predictive analytics has taken higher education by storm, with its promise of closing equity gaps, raising student retention rates, and increasing tuition revenue by keeping students enrolled. But clean data and algorithms alone cannot create change; action is necessary. Communicating the findings of these predictive systems to students is a vital step in successfully using predictive analytics and doing so equitably is of utmost importance.

Please join New America's Higher Education Initiative as Alejandra Acosta presents a new report, "How You Say It Matters: Communicating Predictive Analytics Findings to Students," followed by a panel of experts who have successfully implemented predictive analytics at their campus. The panel will discuss institutional challenges and solutions with communicating analytics findings and messaging strategies, including for diverse populations.
