What is Precision Academics?
Precision Academics, at its core, is the practice of using digital data from student learning activities to inform and improve instruction. Just as the practice of precision medicine is being driven by extensive laboratory and clinical data that now can be parsed, mined, and focused into solutions for ever more finely grained categories of individuals – precision academics is technology-enabled, data-informed, and empirically-evidenced instruction.
