Demographics vs. Behaviors: Why Mindsets Matter for Student Outcomes

Wednesday, October 11 | 4:00PM–4:45PM CT | W186, Level 1
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Presentation/Panel Session
As more institutions adopt AI and data-driven decision making to improve student outcomes, campuses default to using demographic data in their algorithmic models. But demographic data doesn’t fully capture who a person truly is or the reason behind their behavior. Join this discussion on why using behavioral data leads to better student outcomes and how to implement this practice on your campus.
