WHAT IS IT?
Predictive analysis focuses on determining outcomes based on performance and demographic data. The concept behind this method is that, by acknowledging how many students will be earning a degree for that year, higher education institutions can make better decisions.
One of the most significant advantages of using predictive analytics in higher education is that it can positively affect the ratio of caseload vs. full-time advisors at colleges.
Certain students need more individualized attention, which is why using predictive analysis to determine who they are and thus increase their chances of getting a degree is something colleges are starting to do.
