Tools For Evidence-based Action Ribbon ToolThe Ribbon tool is a visualization system to understand the pathways that students take through a university over time (Sankey Diagram).
For example, one side breaks down the student populations into categories (such as major in freshman year) and the other side breaks down the students into the same or different categories (such as major senior year). The ribbons are a visualization of population density flows of students moving from leftmost categories to rightmost categories.
The beauty of the tool is that the categories are completely flexible which means this tool can be used to understand any sort of movements that may interest an institution. The July 2015 issue of Nature features the Ribbon tool.
