Student Data can Reveal At Risk Students Sooner So much institutional and student success depends on being able to identify early, and predict an “at risk” student. Without the use of a learning management system (LMS), traditional methods of analyzing student data and red-flagging possible at risk students relied upon a fairly narrow analysis of a student’s history, such as: Those who have taken a gap yearFull-time employedPart-time enrolled But these only look at the high-level picture and not at the individual work that each student is doing in a course. Mature and returning students comprise a large portion of the online learning enrollment, which means that more attention is required to look beyond the overall data and into their level of course engagement, starting from day one of the course. And this is where an LMS with predictive analytics becomes a key component for analyzing data, on a daily basis.
