Topic: Using Behavioral Analysis to Improve Retention

What if you could increase your retention rate by 5%? Strong retention rates help schools increase graduation rates, maintain tuition dollars, and support accreditation. And it all starts with the success of your students. Most schools have no way to identify struggling students until they fail or withdraw. By then, it’s too late. You need to be ahead of the game. Detective gives school personnel a crystal ball to predict the success of students; today, most schools are managing retention by looking into the rear view mirror. In this session, we will discuss best practices in utilizing AspirEDU’s Dropout Detective solution to identify and support at-risk students and how to coordinate the support efforts of instructors, advisors, and school personnel. In addition, we’ll share results of a case study recently completed by East Central Community College. ECCC realized pass rate increases for 15-week and 8-week online courses ranging from 5.2 to 32 percent and withdrawal rate decreases ranging from 6.5 to 54 percent by pairing the identification of at-risk students with referrals to academic tutoring services.
