Academic Performance Solutions

A Decision-Support Platform Built for Higher Education

From identifying bottleneck courses to conducting program reviews to managing instructional capacity, our partners use APS to surface opportunities that impact student success and the bottom line.

We combine data with benchmarks and support to help you build a culture of data-informed decisions

  • Democratized Data

    The self-service platform can be dynamically filtered in real-time, giving you the data you need, when you need it

  • Context for Comparison

    Discipline-level benchmarks are available throughout the platform, from a cohort of peer institutions chosen by you

  • Guidance for Action

    Actionable opportunities are paired with concrete recommendations and proven best practices

“People have a desire to paint the picture that they want and to create the scenario with data that they think best serves their own individual interests. But with the APS tool, we can all start talking about the same data in the same way.”

Dr. JuliAnn Mazachek, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Washburn University

“[EAB] worked so carefully with us on implementing the product and we were able to implement in a relatively short amount of time, without [requiring] a lot of time by the folks on our side. So, when EAB says that they're going to do the heavy lift, you can believe them.”
