Data Analytics with Student Records
Students are the core components of any educational institution. Everyday, loads of data is generated around students, but we have not been able to use this data into practical information that can aid in decision-making. Irrespective of whether institutions use automation and data repositories or manually store student records, data is being generated every hour.
Lets look at some activities in an institution which are constantly generating data.
- Every day or every hour institutions take student attendance. Following attendance trends with visual data interpretation can quickly warn of possible student dropouts.
- Student’s enrolment to courses can help institutions quickly find which courses are popular and which are not. This knowledge can help them take informed decisions on whether to make improvements on a particular course or find new popular courses and subjects.
- Fee payments done by students and their parents are the quickest and best indicators for your institution’s success or failure. With historical data, institutions can take informed decisions on whether to revise fees for a particular course.
- Every day, institutions communicate with students either physically or in electronic format. Tracking these communications with easy to interpret data analytics will help institutions take effective decisions on improving communication standards and practices. Often, with improved communications, institutions are able to attract students back for more educational needs.
These are but a few advantages and applications of data analytics with student records.
