The Florida College System has a world-renowned data infrastructure ideally suited to supporting the work of the Florida Student Success Center. Colleges submit student level data throughout the academic year that allows for advanced analysis of student retention, progression, success, and graduate outcomes. Our goal as a system is to move from transactional reporting to transformational analytics. Data informed decision making facilitates our efforts to promote student readiness, access, and success at our colleges.
Business Intelligence Tools
The Florida Student Success Center is building off of the work already undertaken in four business intelligence tools. Current tools include:
Florida’s Pk-20 Educational Information Portal (EdStats). EdStats connects people with reports and statistical information about: (1) PK-12 Public Schools, (2) Florida College System, (3) Outcomes Data, and (4) Workforce Data. Each of the four areas provides access to standard and interactive reports that provide overall and demographic information in a variety of formats including graphs, tables, maps and custom reports based on your interests in education-related data.
FindMyCollegeMajor.org. A tool conceptualized, developed and administered by the Florida College System Foundation in partnership with the LINCS Consortium led by Broward College and supported by the U.S. Department of Labor grant. The website is a one-stop resource for students to explore the programs at colleges of interest, obtain information about the related occupation(s) and explore current career opportunities.
