There can be many red flags when it comes to disproportionate outcomes for targeted student populations. Your Disproportionate Impact report is the best way you can measure gaps between certain groups and your student body as a whole. Catching these warning signs as soon as possible can help improve your report outcomes as well as the success of all student groups.
Our reporting software makes it easy to customize and analyze data for certain cohorts so that you can evaluate any disproportionately impacted groups and intervene as necessary.
Reports to Help You Determine Percentage Point Gaps
A simple method for determining outcome inequities for certain student populations is by assessing the percentage point gap (PPG).
PPG is determined by comparing outcomes from certain cohorts with outcomes from the entire student population. Common cohorts that are assessed are ethnicities, gender, veteran status and first-year students. From here, it’s possible to discover the courses that have a negative impact on a certain group.
Assessing disproportionate outcomes is one of the first steps institutions need to take in order to help all students succeed. PPG is included as part of the Disproportionate Impact report in Precision Campus.
Use Your Data to Help All Students Succeed
Everyone has the right to an education, which is why equity offices focus on ensuring college and university classes serve all types of students.
However, available opportunities don’t always guarantee success. Certain groups might struggle with difficult classes or adjusting to college life, making Disproportionate Impact reports extremely valuable for overall student success.
While faculty members may have the best insight into which students are struggling, the data in your reports is what you need to act confidently and strategically. Are first-generation students struggling more than others? Do students in one particular cohort have difficulty in the same course? Your Disproportionate Impact reports can help you identify trends and gaps so that you can track student progress and intervene when necessary.
Precision Campus includes the reports you need right out of the box, so there’s no need to spend your valuable time building them on your own. Plus, with the endless filtering capabilities, you can narrow down student data by any demographic.
