Transferability of Postsecondary Credit Following Student Transfer or Coenrollment: Statistical Report

The purpose of this report is to examine how often, and under what conditions, postsecondary institutions accept the transfer of credits earned by students at other institutions. It addresses the following questions:
• How often do members of a cohort of beginning college students transfer or coenroll1 between postsecondary education institutions during their undergraduate years?
• How often, and in what amounts, do credits transfer when students move from one institution to another?
• What characteristics of institutions (i.e., control, level, accreditation, and selectivity) and students (i.e., grade point average [GPA] and degree/award level of program) are related to credit transfer?

Learning-Centric Data Scientists to Take Over Higher Ed

"Instructional designers were yesterday’s hot new member of the course development team. Today, the must-have course development team member (along with faculty and instructional designers and media specialist and librarians) is the data scientist.

And not just any data scientist.  A data scientist who is also an expert in program assessment.  A data scientist who is also a learning geek, steeped in all things Bloom and constructivist.

Maybe these learning-centric data scientists have always been wandering around campus.  Hanging out with the good people in Institutional Research, ensconced over at the Ed School.

From here on out the learning-focused data scientists are the new superstars.  The cool kids.  The big women and men on campus."

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s insight:

Well, not really. But they are one symptom of drastically changing times. "This is a shift away from the model of a solo professor creating / delivering / evaluating each course to a team-based and data-centric teaching model."
