Student Success Program Assessment
This is a soup-to-nuts consultation to ramp up the productivity and results of your retention program. An experienced consultant will review and audit your entire student success program, including processes and resources at your institution. Based on your institution’s mission and a thorough understanding of the unique attributes of your student population, you will receive a prescriptive report providing detailed data-driven recommendations based on best practices. Your consultant will provide an action plan for implementation. This assessment benefits student retention programs of all types—whether you are currently using a retention software tool, are considering one, or do not have one in place.
Institutional Organization for Student Success
This holistic service provides guidance to help the institution best organize itself to maximize student success. We will examine and refine the process for reaching out to students in need of intervention. Your consultant will provide recommendations for staff involvement, as well as roles, approaches, workflows, and reporting to ensure that there is a clear plan of action to reach out to and retain students who are identified to be “at risk.” The institution-wide implementation plan identifies opportunities for efficiency improvements, data collection, and analysis strategies.
Non-Cognitive Risk Factor Analytics for Student Success
Including non-cognitive risk factors in your retention model can collectively increase the accuracy of your performance and persistence predictions by as much as 30 to 40%. A Jenzabar strategic consultant will help you deploy the Jenzabar Student Success Survey to uncover the previously-hidden factors that have a significant impact on retention at your institution. Your consultant will help create or augment your existing early alert systems to identify at-risk students and then connect them to the precise support services and activities they need to increase persistence and academic success.
