Dear Mr. Nash,

In processing your request for records related to DegreeAnalytics, I noticed the expected due date posted on MuckRock is today.  However, your request was sent after the close of business on Thursday, November 7 making the date of receipt Friday, November 8.  Therefore, you should expect a response from VCU by close of business tomorrow, November 15.  Thank you.

Sincerely,

Dear Mr. Nash,

As you know, this office received your request for information below.
Specifically, you have asked for (1) a copy of any contract, MOU or other
agreement between VCU and DegreeAnalytics; and (2) any reports or databases
submitted to VCU by DegreeAnalytics between January 1, 2019 and the present.

Attached is a copy of the contract between VCU and DegreeAnalytics that is
responsive to the first part of your request. As to the second part of
your request, because VCU is in the initial stages of the RAM Attend pilot,
VCU has not received any reports or databases from DegreeAnalytics
analyzing student attendance data. Therefore, the requested records do not
exist. However, additional details and FAQs that will be updated regularly
that may be useful to you are available here:
https://studentsuccess.vcu.edu/ramattend/. Thank you.
Best,
