The Pathway Velocity Dashboard focuses on the analysis of the pathway of your institution selected in the filter on the right-hand side.
Standard information about the pathway is displayed at the top of the screen.
- Pathway Name
- Student Count*
- Credits Required (sum of the credits across the pathway’s course sequence)
- Average Credits Transferred* (number of credits applied to this pathway, not accomplished at this institution)
- Institutional Credits Required* (credits to be taken at the institution, not transferred in)
- (Credits Required) - (Average Credits Transferred)
Metrics are shared from other dashboards and how these values are calculated is described in the Intro to Degree Velocity Dashboard article.
- Degree Velocity
- Productive Credits/Year
- Productive Ratio
- Total Credits/Year
- Total Velocity
Degree Completion Projections
The Degree Completion Projections visualization estimates how long it takes for the average student to complete their degree in years and in credits.
Time to Degree
Time to Degree estimates how long it takes for the average student to complete their degree in years.
Credits to Degree
Credits to Degree estimates how long it takes for the average student to complete their degree in credits.
Current Pace (blue bar) shows the average time a student would take to complete this pathway if they continued to take credits towards this pathway in the same way as they have before; same credits attempted and completed per term as before.
Correct Pace (green bar) shows the average time a student would take to complete this pathway if they started to take courses at 100% Degree Velocity; thirty credits per year attempted and completed.
We expect the true completion to be somewhere in the middle; early unproductive credits may skew the current pace longer than reality while a failed class may make the bottom bar unobtainable.
