Enrollment Dashboards

Sections Counts and Enrollments by Modality

Dashboard displaying 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?

 

Relative Day Average Enrollment Comparison

Dashboard displaying 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

Dashboard comparing the 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. We acknowledge that 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 date?
  • Are there retention 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?
