Academic Reporting Tools (ART 2.0) serve the U-M community by exposing historical academic data including information about courses, instructors, and majors. ART 2.0 is a data visualization tool that will assist decision makers in accessing and analyzing U-M course and academic program data to help administration, faculty, and students make more informed decisions.
In service of meeting this objective, ART 2.0 has recently added a new feature called “Academic Spotlight” that takes unique and significant kinds of U-M data, and puts them into relevant categories and lists for the campus community. There are currently six spotlights available:
- The 10 largest undergraduate courses.
- All Arthur F. Thurnau faculty.
- The 10 fastest growing degrees by percentage increase over the last three years.
- Center for Entrepreneurship courses.
- 100 courses, based on student evaluation data, with the highest ratio of ‘Increased Interest’ vs ‘Desire to take.’
- A Wild Card feature that randomly exposes students to courses they may not otherwise consider.
