Data is a key tool for understanding and facilitating the implementation and impact of pathways across DEAN partners. The pathways data team, facilitated by DEAN, is collaborating to adopt and implement a feasible data framework that helps DEAN partners understand the impact of implementing a system-wide pathways strategy.
The Pathways Data Framework will provide decision-makers with the information they need to implement, improve, and understand the impact of pathways on high-value credential completion and workforce outcomes.
DEAN has developed a series of goals and priority metrics to measure progress on partnership goals of increasing postsecondary credential attainment and closing equity gaps. These metrics are important momentum points along the path to credential completion.
