Implementation and User Adoption of Integrated Planning and Advising Services (IPAS)

March 2012−Present

Because community colleges lack the resources to provide in-depth, one-on-one student advising, some colleges and for-profit companies have used technology to create Integrated Planning and Advising Services (IPAS)—electronic tools that assist with program and course selection and in targeting support services. This project seeks to understand the processes through which these tools are implemented and adopted by end users. The primary goals of the project are to (1) describe and document the implementation process; (2) analyze changed end-user practice over time; and (3) validate CCRC’s emergent Technology Adoption Framework that was developed to assess institutions’ readiness to adopt new technology.

This project is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
