Student Response System for Faculty Provides Real-Time Feedback on Student Learning
NEW HAVEN, April 30, 2014—In its efforts to continually offer solutions that best empower institutions to make data-driven decisions, Higher One, a leader in providing financial services and data analytics to more than 1,900 college and university campuses across the U.S., has announced new features in its Campus Labs® Baseline offering. Baseline’s new in-classroom tool provides real-time assessment data, allowing professors to tailor their instruction to the students in the moment—and over time, to make strategic adjustments to their core teachings in accordance with student feedback and demonstrated learning outcomes.
In January 2014, Baseline was recognized as a reader’s choice top product in University Business Magazine. Additional feedback from faculty and administrators indicated that in order to further elevate an already highly respected solution, Baseline should include a tool that incorporates real-time data sourced directly from students in the classroom.
“This key addition to Baseline will not only help students, but also help further institutional goals by enabling academic affairs professionals to show they are doing what it takes to ensure the success of its students,” said Eric Reich, senior vice president at Higher One. “Professors can also gain a better understanding of student learning and the effectiveness of their teaching methods and use that knowledge to improve the class based on immediate student feedback.”
Higher One’s Campus Labs Baseline provides the technology, resources and expert consultation required to create an integrated, coordinated and comprehensive assessment approach across campus. It was designed to connect and translate assessment data for the purposes of improving the student experience both inside and outside the classroom.
