Abstract:Student Dashboards – The Case for Building Communities of Practice

The use of predictive data analysis and student dashboards is in its infancy in UK Higher Education. These systems offer advantages such as earlier student interventions and the identification of effective interventions, but there are also inherent issues and a lack of widespread understanding of how to interpret the data presented to best support student success. Through an analysis of several specific issues, this presentation argues the need for building a community of practice around the dashboard to enable individual practitioners to understand how to integrate the information they present into their work for better student outcomes. We conclude that dashboard systems are useful but greater consideration needs to be given to the development of effective advising practices to complement them.
