July 18th, 2016

Blackboard launched the new generation predictive analysis solution – “Blackboard Predict”, which provides educators with the timely information they need to help students complete college at a higher rate, more quickly, and at a lower cost.

In a recent announcement,  BB team announced the release of BlackBoard Predict which can be used to identify at-risk students, and intervene before they go off track. It uses data from your existing student information and learning management systems to build a predictive model that provides clear, actionable early alerts to faculty and advisors.

In a nut shell, Blackboard Predict consists of:

  1. a custom predictive model that makes use of an institution’s existing data to identify students at risk;
  2. engaging visualizations that help to drive action on the part of students, faculty, and advisors; and
  3. a communication tool that enables faculty to easily pass early alerts along to professional academic counsellors in support of proactive and intensive advising practices.
