Degree Velocity measures the productive credit hour completion rate of a student. It is calculated by taking the number of productive credits completed by a student in a year and dividing it by the annual productive credit hour goal. For example, if the student completes 24 credit hours, but only 21 of those credits apply to the degree and 30 credits is the suggested low for the student to be on time to the degree, then the degree velocity is 21/30 or 70%. Degree Velocity is a measurement of productive credit hours.
The Degree Velocity reports track students' degree completion in real-time while they progress through the institution. If Predict is enabled and the data is missing, a new run may be needed in order for this feature to be added.
Degree Velocity reports are currently available to Predict partners. If you’re missing an active term, you may not have Predict enabled for your institution.
