Courses Product Overview

Product Overview 

Courses helps you understand how student performance in specific courses may impact student success at your institution. Use Illume Courses to answer questions you have about how different courses affect the student groups at your institution. Select a Focus Area to see the courses with the largest impact on an individual student, the courses with the greatest potential to boost graduation and persistence rates, or the courses with the highest percentages of Ds, Fs, and withdrawals.

In deploying Courses, we ingest your institution’s historical and current term data into our Student Insights Engine, which renders actionable insights into the Illume interfaces about your student’s persistence and graduation likelihoods. Illume Courses surfaces these insights to reveal the courses with the greatest potential for immediate and multi-term impact on student outcomes. For each course, identify grade tipping points and target individual currently enrolled students to recommend institutional resources.

Transforming student success requires an integrated approach, in which insights are available not only to administrators and deans, but also to faculty members, advisors, and students. Only together can you chart the course to student persistence and completion. 

Use Courses to turn the DIAL at your institution—optimize data to maximize insight to inform action and continue learning:

  • Identify courses at key stages of the student career that have the strongest impact on success likelihoods.

  • Explore insights for each course, including the tipping point grades that affect persistence and graduation and how they compare to those of other courses at your institution.

  • Identify students who completed this course with a grade below the tipping point and take action while they are still enrolled at your institution. 

  • Optimize course offerings and pathways by using insights about the courses that most strongly impact student outcomes.

Key Functionality

Use Courses to:

  • Spotlight courses that significantly impact persistence and graduation.

  • See a breakdown of the most predictive courses taken each year in the student’s academic career and identify the course grades needed for students to have an above average likelihood of persisting or graduating.

  • Apply filters to surface which courses at your institution have the greatest impact on selected student groups.

  • View Key Insights about an individual course, including how it differs from other courses taken in the same year and its potential impact on persistence and graduation.

  • Use student lists to identify students currently enrolled in any course of interest or students who have taken the course previously and are still enrolled at the institution.
