Immediate Feedback

The Interactive Graduation Planning System (iGPS) ties together many of our newest systems and aims to provide students and advisors with immediate feedback on whether a student's academic plan appears to be on track for graduation. The architectural vision is dynamic and is meant to convey the same level of feedback as GPS systems do when recalculating routes to a desired geographical destination-in the case of the iGPS, the destination is graduation. As a student makes changes to his or her plan by adding or removing courses and receive grades, the iGPS system provides feedback to the student and to the student's advisor as to the status of the plan, thereby allowing for earlier detection of challenges and development of alternative plans.
