A New Perspective on Data
Studying our student’s bright spots
The Fresno C2C data team is working on a mapping project to determine why a cohort of Fresno State sophomores are exceeding expectations. As eighth graders this group of students was underperforming. In college, these students are doing well and on track to graduate. By looking at a mosaic of data and tracing the journey of their lives, we can determine what created these positive results. Data can do much more than highlight areas of need, it can illuminate where to strategically direct resources to have the greatest positive impact.
