Use the Student Demographics Dashboard

 

This Business Intelligence dashboard was designed to replicate the functionality of the Student Demographics application found in Blackboard's Secure Apps tab. It allows the user to track students majoring in specific Academic Plans, Majors (Organizations), Departments, or Colleges. Additionally, one can query for total university-enrollment. These reports can assist in many aspects of administrative planning.
