Toolkit: Understanding the Impact of Remote Instruction in Spring 2020

With the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, institutions faced the unprecedented challenge of switching to remote instruction mid-semester. Administrators, faculty, and staff worked tirelessly to support their students’ safety and continued learning. But what was the impact of the mid-semester switch to remote instruction? When the Spring 2020 semester ended, our Academic Performance Solutions (APS) data team turned to APS benchmarking data to find out.

Benchmark data is a valuable source of insight that allows institutions to compare their performance to that of their peers. Use this toolkit to explore the data from our cohort analysis of 49 partner institutions, examining the changes in course completion by department and instructor type from Spring 2019 to Spring 2020. The toolkit also features reflection prompts to help you consider what the benchmarks mean for your institution as you plan for Spring 2021 and beyond.
