enrollment data is course evaluation ready with DIG.
Having worked with hundreds of institutions globally, a recurring challenge to full automation and efficiency in the course evaluation process has been enrollment data readiness. We’ve noticed that when data is not reliable there are two outcomes: it breaks the automation loop and puts a risk of error in the evaluation process. No one wants to make decisions with ‘dirty data’ or have a report end up in the wrong hands.
As a result, course evaluation administrators tend to spend weeks validating data and ensuring it is ready. This is a cumbersome operation that includes following up with hundreds of department heads and course coordinators. Even then the process is still manual and error prone. So what does it mean to be course evaluation ready?
DIG solves the most common challenges:
Serial Lectures – With DIG you can split lectures to ensure they are evaluated at the right time.
Low Enrollment Courses – Merge low enrollment courses and still get the data you need for each with DIG.
Data Validation – Not sure if the right instructors are assigned to the right courses? DIG allows you to delegate the validation of data to ensure it is accurate and complete.
Teaching Assistants – Assign the right TAs to the right courses even if they are not in your SIS.
Mass Modification – In one click, apply specific evaluation rules on a multitude of courses.
Evaluation Rules – Delegate rules as needed for courses that are being evaluated such as start/end dates and other criteria.
Accountability – Add accountability traces to enrollment data prior to evaluations. With DIG all changes and modifications are flagged and assigned to the responsible individual.
Automatic Follow-ups – With DIG, you can automatically follow up with administrators to ensure enrollment data is validated.
