GALLATIN (AP) — Three schools in Tennessee have been chosen to join Austin Peay State University in using a high-tech tool designed to help students determine classes they would do well.
According to a news release from Volunteer State Community College, the Gallatin school, Nashville State Community College and the University of Memphis have been selected to use the computer-based Adaptive Advising Tool. It uses predictive analytics to provide students with suggested courses, which are based on the success of other students with similar academic backgrounds.
It was developed at Austin Peay by Dr.Tristan Denley, the school’s provost.
Staff with the Tennessee Higher Education Com-mission will help with the implementation.
