With a highly nontraditional, at risk population, anecdotal data is simply not enough. In order to drive effective decision making for the individual learner, it is imperative to engineer academic analytics which can drill down to identify each student's needs early. Institutions can begin with simple, but reliable data points easily found in their own Learning Management Systems (LMS), Student Information Systems (SIS), and other demographic at risk entry indicators. This analytics bridge is a direct route to the academic, emotional, career, and other support mechanisms this learner needs to stay on the road towards graduation. When we bridge together Information Technology, Business Analytics, Institutional Research, and Academics departments, we create the strongest data and outreach bridge to help this community of learners.
