Inspire for Faculty uses a student engagement score to signal probable course completion for each student in the sections you teach. The engagement score is calculated using LMS data points that have historically led to success in this particular course. The score is relative to the course average and reflects a student’s online interaction with course material, other students, and the instructor.
As a predictive indicator, engagement is highly correlated with course success at your institution. Course success is typically defined as completing the course with a grade of A, B, or C for undergraduate students and with an A or B for graduate students.
Online engagement is one indicator of probable course success, but there are a number of other factors only you can interpret. Pair Inspire’s engagement score with other data available to you, including grades and student-specific metrics, to help you target students and determine appropriate outreach strategies.
