The following updates to the Beacon system were made on 3/2210/13
Data Visualization & Reporting
Executives and administrators can now use on-screen visualization and filtering tools to examine population trends. These visualizations help identify areas of need and strength in the non-cognitive development of students.
Risk Index Thresholds
Set campus thresholds for Retention and Academic Success risk indicies for visualization of at-risk populations. This allows administrators and Executive to quickly see who’s at-risk on their own campus.
Identify a Data Insight as an automated alert to bring important data about a student to the attention of the success network. By generating automated alerts Beacon becomes more influential with success network members as new data arrives.
Comments on Data Insights
Success network members may now create comment strings on Data Insights. Follow-up and commentary add new layers of context to data insights.
Toggle Student Reports
Administrators may choose to set SSI result data to be hidden from students by default. This feature requires configuration from Campus Labs staff.
