Guided Pathways and Student Equity provide an integral framework to maximize student success by optimizing collaboration across instruction and student services in order to visibly transform the student experience. Selected full-time faculty serve as a data coach and share the responsibility to engage with faculty, management, and staff throughout the college in the understanding and utilization of data around the framework of Guided Pathways and Student Equity.
Data coaches provide assistance to departments and divisions in analyzing and using student data to inform their planning and improvement efforts. In partnership with IERP, data coaches receive training to help guide data informed decision-making, such as knowing how to ask the right questions, how to identify the data needed to answer the questions, and how to access the types of data available.
Data Coaches can help you find information about:
- Program Review
- Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)
- Labor market information (supply and demand)
- Student demographics
- Disproportionately impacted groups as it relates to student equity
- Course enrollment, success, completion, and withdrawals
- Degree and certificate completion
