EnGauge Analytics
for Higher Education

Is your campus collecting data, but not able to use it to generate insights? Rounding out your analytics team to do just that is a difficult task.

Often, Universities have to outsource non-core competencies - like data analytics - because forming and hiring an effective data analytics team is time-consuming and expensive. 

EnGauge Analytics can help fill the gaps in your analytics roster. Our Education Data Analyst team (“EDA”), comprised of data scientists and educators, is ready to step in. 

Work Smarter with Your Analytics, not Harder.

In the absence of full-time staff availability, use Degree Analytics’ fractional EDAs to help you and your teams. Whether you need a full-time EDA or 1/3rd of an EDA, be consistent with analytics efforts and output with a dedicated team member that is always working on solving your problems.

CHALLENGE: Food security and access was a constant issue on campus. More dining spaces were needed to better serve students, but there was no data to guide where to strategically place the new facilities.

SOLUTION: Degree Analytics provided real-time traffic flow data around campus before and after every meal, identifying the most frequented areas of campus and the most strategic locations for new dining areas.

CHALLENGE: DEI efforts over the past 2 years have failed to raise 1st year retention rates among the most vulnerable students on campus. The lack of sufficient data has prevented leadership and other campus stakeholders from launching directed and targeted initiatives with KPIs to measure progress.

SOLUTION: Degree Analytics provided detailed student engagement and success analytics for all targeted cohorts. This allowed the initiative’s impact to be monitored and the necessary adjustments made quickly.

CHALLENGE: For the last several years, accurately calculating returns to Title IV-A resulted in over returning funds the university and students had actually earned. Not having efficient and accurate attendance data to determine Last Day of Attendance (LDOA) for recipients was costing tremendous amounts of money every semester.

SOLUTION: Degree Analytics resolved miscalculations by automating the entire attendance taking process. Accurate LDOA reports are generated every semester so funds are not unintentionally over-returned.
