2 Introduction Purpose: Demonstrate how STARS (http://stars.wayne.edu), a home-grown web application, provides a user friendly Web Interface to Banner and other databases for Academic Faculty, Staff and Administratorshttp://stars.wayne.edu Benefits: Easy access to student data from a variety of data sources including Banner Enables the maintenance of custom data (outside of Banner) to help in advising, tracking, and retention efforts Includes useful web reports (downloadable in spreadsheet format) with drill-down to individual student data

3 Topics of Discussion Connection between STARS and Banner Demonstration of STARS Student Information Demonstration of STARS Reports Survey and Findings What’s next for STARS? I-20 Tracking System

4 Connection Between STARS and Banner Uses Banner data as provided through the Data mart. Also draws on other data sources including Testing and Evaluation and official and unofficial historic data not yet converted to Banner Provides additional capability to monitor student progress by allowing input of custom data to support advising and retention efforts – data is stored outside of Banner
