Donald Norris and Linda Baer have surveyed 40 leading institutions and 20 technology vendors to produce this report published by EDUCAUSE in February 2013. The aim of the project was to ‘determine the state of practice and gaps between needs and solutions in building capacity in analytics to improve student success’.
The survey findings will be used in developing “A Toolkit for Building Organizational Capacity in Analytics” currently being developed by the authors with support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The paper provides findings to date. The project is ongoing and further surveys are planned with ongoing updating of information.
