Synopsis

Tribal, based in the UK, is a global provider of software solutions specialising in products supporting the management of education.

 

Tribal's Student Insights is a piece of software that is currently developed to predict student performance and 'at-risk' students from data available in student information systems, including academic performance at entrance, demographics, or assessment results, as well as activity data, such as student interaction, VLE Usage, or library usage.

 

The software generates predictive models about a student's likelihood to pass a module. The software provides dashboards of this information at student and module level. Managers of universities can use this information, for example, to provide individual student support, or to monitor modules with regard to their predicted performance.
