Keynote Presentation

“Applying Predictive Analytics to Raise Graduation Rates”

Presented by Mark P. Becker,
P
resident, Georgia State University

Mark Becker will discuss Georgia State University’s unconventional approach to improve student performance. Dr. Becker, who has a doctoral degree in statistics, and his team used data to closely study when students were in trouble, a method called “predictive analytics.” The university offered additional counseling and coaching and grants, if necessary, to struggling students to help them graduate. Georgia State’s six-year graduation rate rose nearly 6 percentage points during Becker’s first four years. GSU’s success with predictive analytics has attracted the attention of educators and philanthropists like Bill Gates to understand how it works.
