Abstract

While engaged in academic reading, a college provost converged on an idea to use a preferential approach to students’ selection of college courses, similar to the recommendation ideas based on Netflix and Amazon. The result of this idea came to be known as Degree Compass and was implemented on the campus of Austin Peay State University in 2011. Herein the reader will learn about the idea, the program, and the results of students’ surveyed perceptions of efficiency and effectiveness regarding the programs’ use at the university.
