What is Leader Insights?

Leader Insights is a centralized dashboard experience for campus leaders to understand progress, success, and improvement from across Watermark products.

The initial adopters are Leaders whose institutions use Planning & Self-Study as Leader Insights currently lives within Watermark’s Planning & Self-Study. Campus leadership, for which Leader Insights are currently developed, typically have institutional roles like Provost, Chief Academic Chair, or Associate Vice Provost for Institutional Effectiveness as well as Deans, Chairs and other department leaders. 

How Leader Insights Helps Leaders Drive Alignment, Continuous Improvement and Student Success

Leader Insights helps leaders monitor and drive engagement in your continuous improvement processes, while creating a bridge between institutional effectiveness and student success insights for building collaborative, impactful initiatives. 

At a broad level, Leader Insights helps campus leadership with real-time visibility into questions that speak to organizational and program progress related to the Watermark solutions your institution uses, including: 

  • How close are we to having data to review?
  • How engaged are our departments and programs to institutional alignment, continuous improvement and/or student success?

In addition to the at-a-glance information, leaders can also drill down into some of the insights to understand the specific progress of individual organizations and programs and prepare for a discussion with academic councils or strategize on specific ways to drive higher engagement, where and when it’s needed.

Adding additional Watermark solutions unlocks deeper essential questions specific to the processes. For example: 

  • Planning & Self-Study: How many and which organizations and programs are participating in learning assessment? What are the programs or organizations that need a nudge?
  • Student Learning & Licensure: What is our progress gathering authentic evidence of student learning?
  • Student Success & Engagement: What is the proportion of students by risk category as it relates to course success and term persistence? Where are we prioritizing our efforts/key engagement as it relates to students and their course success and term persistence risk level?
  • Course Evaluations & Surveys: What is the progress of student course engagement and satisfaction measures, and how does this compare to our previous response rates?
