Time-to-degree Analysis Made Easy with Tableau
Sarah Gallimore

Presentation Abstract:

This presentation will demonstrate the ease of analyzing students’ time-to-degree and its trends with Tableau. These visualizations will assist admission counselors and academic advisors with strategic advising students regarding selecting or transferring majors. They are also very useful tools to start campus-wide discussions, identify areas for improvement and help student success. Participants will be able to understand the logic of calculation used in the visualization and learn how to interpret data and trends to make meaningful recommendations for decision making. Participants will also be able to build a similar visual tool upon returning to their own institution.
