Manuela Ekowo and Iris Palmer's predictive analytics research was covered in Campus Technology.
Last year New America set out to explore the use of predictive analytics. Authors Manuela Ekowo and Iris Palmer interviewed 30-plus college administrators, experts and educational technology vendors and also worked with several institutions to write "The Promise and Peril of Predictive Analytics in Higher Education: A Landscape Analysis." This year the policy analysts developed a framework of ethical practices for the use of predictive analytics. Their newest report, "Predictive Analytics in Higher Education: Five Guiding Practices for Ethical Use," examines the ethical concerns involved in using data to make predictions and its impact on underrepresented students.
