OIEA’s PowerBI Dashboards:

  • Course Retention and Success presents course enrollment, retention, and success rates for three academic years. The data can be viewed by multiple disaggregation options, including Department, Discipline, Location/Modality, Ethnicity, and Gender. A video overview of the dashboard can be found by clicking hereQuestions to consider when reviewing the data:
    • How do retention and success rates vary over time?
    • How do retention and success rates differ across ethnic and gender groups?
    • Are certain ethnic and gender groups being retained or succeeding at a higher rate?

 

  • Course Equity Dashboard evaluates disproportionate impact (DI) on retention and success rate at the course-level. Data is aggregate by semester over three academic years. The dashboard uses DI methods endorsed by the California Community College Chancellor's Office; more details of the methods can be found on the dashboard. A video overview of the dashboard can be found by clicking hereQuestions to consider when reviewing the data:
    • Are there equity gaps in retention or success in particular courses?
    • If gaps are present, consider what strategies may be implemented to address these gaps.

 

  • Degrees and Certificates provides a snapshot of the annual number of awards conferred in the last three academic years.The data can be viewed by multiple disaggregation options, including Career and Academic Pathways (CAP), Industry Sectors (where applicable), program and demographics (age, ethnicity, gender). A video overview of the dashboard can be found by clicking hereQuestions to consider when reviewing the data:
    • Are my program completions increasing or decreasing over time? 
    • How do my program completions vary across demographic groups?

 

  • Relative Day Average Enrollment Comparison displays the average enrollment per section based on the day relative to the start date. The purpose of this dashboard is to understand when and where students are enrolling, and question how we can ensure that we make clear the pathway in our students' educational journey. Therefore, we offer the following questions to consider when reviewing the data:
    • How do the enrollments compare to the previous terms?
    • In what areas (departments, discipline, courses) are enrollments lower compared to previous years?
    • What outreach efforts can we implement to mitigate these lower enrollments, if possible? 
       
  • Average Enrollment Comparison: First Day to Census compares  average class enrollment from the start day to census. The purpose of this dashboard is to understand when and where the College is losing students, and develop ways to better support their educational journey. Students cannot succeed in a course, nor complete a program unless they continue in their coursework (retention). Therefore, please consider the following questions when reviewing the data: 
    • In what areas (departments, discipline, courses) are we losing students from the start date to census?
    • Are there strategies that can be used to ensure students are retained and successful in their courses?
    • What institutional barriers (lack of supports, cost of textbooks, etc.) are contributing to drops in retention from start date to census? How can we work across campus to support student retention and success?

 

  • Sections and Enrollments by Modality displays the number of sections and enrollments by modality for each department and discipline. The purpose of this dashboard is to understand which departments and disciplines have higher or lower class sizes by modality, and know how many sections are offered by modality for the whole college. Therefore, we offer the following questions to consider when reviewing the data:
    • In what areas (departments, disciplines) are average class sizes lower for in-person classes than online classes?
    • In what areas (departments, disciplines) are average class sizes higher for in-person classes than online classes?
    • Where are we in meeting our online vs in-person collegewide goals?
