DFW Dashboard Report

Overview

You can access the DFW Dashboard report from the DFW folder in the Report App. The report displays information on unsuccessful grades (commonly referred to as DFW’s) for a course by term. This report will allow you to view and isolate DFW rates by term, course, college, modality, and instructor. DFW grades are identified as "non-applicable" grade codes that are set up in the Astra application. 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.
