Using student data responsibly : how to protect, analyze, and act on the information you have / by Swaak, Taylor,author.; Chronicle of Higher Education, Inc.,issuing body.;
"Colleges nationwide are increasingly looking to harness data -- especially on their students -- to make strategic and cost-effective decisions. Using predictive analytics in advising, or data on students' needs, for example, can raise retention and graduation rates, close equity gaps, and bring in revenue. But colleges must weigh their ability to know more than ever about their students against potential ethical missteps and privacy risks. And they must figure out which data are useful in the first place. Student data collected or used unwisely can do more harm than good. This special report will describe how to make full use of the data you have while avoiding risks and not breaking the bank. Read this report to: Determine which data will be most useful to collect; Learn how to collect data responsibly and what infrastructure you'll need; Find out how best to communicate with students about data collection; Build a campus culture that recognizes the benefits of data-informed decision-making; Understand how to avoid bias when analyzing data, and the ways in which data can be misleading; Learn how to protect data from cyberattacks, including what questions to ask when forming partnerships with vendors; Identify existing resources you can use to ensure the financial sustainability of your efforts."--Publisher description.Includes bibliographical references (page 42).Deciding what data to collect -- How to collect and protect data -- Analyzing and acting.

This ground-breaking book examines and decodes these elements, exploring how a range of countries make decisions regarding their energy and bio-resource consumption and procurement. The authors consider how these choices impact not only the societies and environments of those countries, but the world in general.To achieve this, the authors review the merits of various sustainability and environmental metrics, and then apply these to 34 countries that are ranked low, medium or high on the human development index. The book assesses their resource capacities and the environmental impacts, both within and outside their country boundaries, from consuming food, water, and energy. The final section uses the lessons derived from the earlier analyses of resource consumption to explore the importance of geography, climates and sustainable management of forests and other natural resources for building resilient societies in the future."--pub. desc.
