Feb 26, 2019

ASR Analytics, LLC is thrilled to be selected by the College of DuPage (COD) as their partner for their Guided Academic Pathways initiatives. ASR will provide technology and consulting services to support the college's strategic goals related to Pathways, analyzing data from a variety of sources to proactively examine student risk, course and program analysis, and persistence.

About ASR Guided Pathways:
There is no "one size fits all" solution for colleges implementing Guided Pathways. Student populations, organizational cultures, and information systems are all unique; with that comes a different set of challenges for every institution. ASR's methodology and approach to Guided Pathways leverages the technology and data that institutions already have in place to better understand the factors behind success and risk. This approach reduces implementation time and cost, and minimizes the learning curve for faculty and staff, so they can focus on the students. ASR's custom data models address the major areas of Guided Pathways: mapping pathways, helping students choose a pathway, keeping students on path, and ensuring students are learning.
