Utilize data to support student success.
Parents, students, and other stakeholders are asking how campus administrators and faculty are helping
students to achieve their academic and career goals. Supporting student success requires campuses to
illuminate the markers of success. While students may have differing paths that guide them in completion of
their education, institutions provide students markers to assist them on their journey.
Campus Labs has created Beacon to help institutions utilize data in supporting student success.
Campus Labs Beacon is a web-based solution focusing on six factors that are the strongest
predictors of student retention and persistence, asking students questions about everything
from their social skills and confidence levels to their attitude toward learning.
By measuring cognitive ability as well as non-cognitive skills, Beacon is able to classify each student,
produce reports for students and advisors, and recommend campus-wide resources for at-risk students.
