A recently obtained ATIPP request reveals that few students use the EAB Navigate app that the Memorial University of Newfoundland administration spent over $2 million on. The usage statistics from June 2018 to June 2021 state that the new user login was an average of 120 students a month, and return user logins on average was 180 students.
Students used the app to create around 871 appointments each month, and the number of distinct students is 648 a month on average. Students, on average, created 166 to-Dos a month. The number of courses for the Study Buddies section of the app was 96 on average, and the number of unique students was 259 on average.
The quick polls that the university ran on the app had 897 students participate in Fall 2019, 519 students in Fall 2020, and 1232 students in Winter 2021.
The ATIPP also reveals staff usage statistics. For the Fall 2020 progress reports, 1607 evaluations were sent, there were 998 responses from professors, and 82 students marked at-risk. The Winter 2021 progress report had 1503 evaluations sent, 724 responses from professors and 64 students marked at risk.
The total number of student case closures is 279. 6 falls under “Met with student, course dropped,” 28 under “Met with student, referred to help centre,” 19 under “Met with student, referred to instructor,” 173 under “Student contacted 2x, no response,” and 53 under “Other.”
