I have been asked to do a retention project for one of our departments, to include length of stay and tracking student movement to other programs, but we don't cohort our students in our system and this is my first time on this sort of project. Does anyone have experience cohorting students in Tableau or do you apply a start term to students on the tables before bringing them into Tableau? (We don't have a data warehouse so I have to export tables into Excel/Access anyway before connecting to Tableau).
Thanks for any tips!
I will mention this to Kristen when she is back in the office. I think she may have some pointers for you.
I'm interested in this as well!
I am quite interested as well...
Hi all -
I have a little experience in this and used sets to do my cohort analysis. It was helpful to have a in/out comparison as well so I could see the progress of students in an area compared to all other students.
Did anything ever come of this? I have wrestled for years with the best way to show retention data...
