Filters enable you to narrow down the courses included in the distribution based on specific student characteristics, such as the courses taken by students pursuing individual majors. Targeting a specific student group with filters will enable you to uncover more focused insights about the courses with the greatest effect on the group’s persistence and graduation likelihood. Each filter category has options that define various groups of your student population.
This is the standard set of filters that are included by default when your deployment is complete. Actual filters displayed in Illume Courses will vary by institution.
The available filter categories include:
|Track||If ‘Persistence Tracks’ have been defined in Illume Students to differentiate groups of students with different enrollment behaviors, this filter surfaces courses with the greatest impact on the selected student track(s).|
Surfaces courses with the greatest impact on the selected undergraduate student type: first time in college, transfer, readmit, transient, high school dual enrollment, or unknown
