Academic Decision Support (ADS) provides University leadership with strategic data to facilitate decision-making. A primary function of ADS is to demonstrate trend-based analytical insight. The dynamic nature of these reports also allows users to view areas of the Institution from whatever level they need – from individual courses to entire colleges/schools. Aside from meeting recurring analytic needs, ADS contains a robust (and growing) repository of information to inform various initiatives. ADS seeks to provide a holistic picture and does not rely on one measure to make or break a decision.
