27 Colleges to Evaluate Student Data More Effectively

on January 31, 2013

A group of community and technical colleges now has access to SAS analytics and visualization software that will help them identify struggling students.

Achieving the Dream partnered with SAS to give these colleges a chance to analyze longitudinal student data over the next three years.
