DFW Grades Reports
Unsuccessful grades, commonly referred to as DFW’s, are a substantial source of decreased student retention, progression, and graduation. The DFW reports focus on identifying trends in unsuccessful grades and identifying academic situations that may be leading to increased DFW rates. This information informs the allocation of limited academic support resources, pathway design, advising, and course offering decisions to increase retention, progression, and graduation.
- Overall unsuccessful rates by term and offering modality
- Unsuccessful rates by individual course
- Unsuccessful rates segmented by course and offering modality
- Unsuccessful rates segmented by course and instructor
DFW Healthy Course Combo Report
It highlights the difference in DFW rates between what is average for the course, and what the average DFW rate is for the course when taken in the same term as the "combo" course. DFW grades are identified as "non-applicable" grade codes that are set up in the Astra application.
Looking at the variance in DFW rates for the same course in this matter may help provide insight into pathway design, and guide institutions in making decisions around which courses should potentially be taken in the same term.
The DFW Pathway report displays information on unsuccessful grades (commonly referred to as DFW’s) for courses by pathway. DFW grades are identified as "non-applicable" grade codes that are set up in the Astra application or can be configured as a separate DFW list. Transfer courses in a student’s academic history as well as courses that did not receive a grade are excluded from the report.
Being able to quickly and effectively identify situations that are leading to higher DFW rates is key to developing strategies and allocating limited resources to increasing student retention, progression, and graduation. Viewing them through the pathway lens will help uncover whether a student's pathway might be a contribution to DFW rates.
The DFW Toxic Course Combination report focuses on identifying individual courses that have substantially increased unsuccessful rates when taken in the same term with specific other courses. These are course combinations that should be avoided by students due to the increased DFW rate. This information is very powerful in informing pathway design and advising recommendations to improve retention, progression, and graduation.DFW Toxic Course Combinations Report
Enrollment & Financial Health Reports
Enrollment health reports help an institution understand how the program size and course fragmentation across campuses as well as offering a variety impacts the availability of courses to students in their pathway.
Financial Analysis layers within the insight into tuition revenue, instructional cost, and margin to further help an institution understand the sustainability of its pathways.
Enrollment Health is a tool to understand the expected number of students moving through your programs. It is also important to understand additional aspects of student preference while examining Enrollment Health, such as campus and modality. Once you understand Enrollment Health, you can pinpoint how programs are fragmented and uncover opportunities to manage the tradeoff between variety and sustainability.Completion Track Analysis by Campus Report
The Financial Analysis report provides insight into the tuition revenue, instructional cost, and margin of your pathways for any given term(s). This perspective can help you understand the financial sustainability of your pathways.

Impact – Benchmarking through the Higher Education Scheduling Index (HESI™). HESI is Ad Astra’s proprietary peer database of over 200+ institutions (2-year, 4-year, public, and private) used to benchmark campuses’ space utilization and course offerings. HESI metrics can help academic leaders optimize course offerings with the goal of advancing student completions. Some metrics you can find are Classroom Utilization, Seat-Fill Utilization, Off-grid Utilization and Waste, Enrollment Ratio, Underutilized Course Ratio, and First Year Overloaded Ratio. Discover the list of HESI metrics.
