A Modern Approach to Institutional Effectiveness
Higher education is in the midst of a new transformation to radically shift its processes to collect data that demonstrate the overall impact on student learning and a clear return on investment. This transformation includes conducting data governance audits, modernizing systems, adopting new technologies, analyzing current data, and seeking opportunities to gather more meaningful data to provide answers about how to more effectively and efficiently support student success.
As a unified platform for assessment management, learner success, and continuous improvement, AEFIS provides institutional leaders with a pathway toward digital transformation—helping to usher in a new more modern approach toward determining institutional effectiveness to drive value and sustainability. AEFIS is flexible, customizable, and provides leaders with a way to organize assessment efforts that lead to a more comprehensive approach to improvement and program prioritization, financial planning, and student employability initiatives. In this way, AEFIS paves the road toward digital transformation as emphasized in the 2021 Higher Education Technology Landscape Report.
Followers of higher education technology all want to predict where the market is headed—often leveraging information such as investments, acquisitions, or macro trends to do so. Parsing through these tea leaves can certainly be helpful, providing insight into the ebbs and flows of the higher education technology market.
But there’s another, often overlooked, approach—one that considers the areas into which new technology companies and products enter. Viewing the market through this lens sheds light on where new vendors think their products will gain the most traction or provide the most significant impact.
