Using Data to Boost Student Engagement and Retention

 Identify at-risk students and intervene early with IBM SPSS Decision Management for Student Retention

Student attrition is a costly problem for many colleges and universities. According to a recent survey, only two-thirds of enrolled students are retained from their freshman to sophomore year. The loss of these students also means the loss of tuition revenue, higher costs for recruiting new students and a devalued school reputation as dropout rates rise. With IBM SPSS Decision Management for Student Retention, your institution’s administrators and faculty can reach out to students early, when they first show signs of at-risk behavior for dropping out. This solution identifies key variables that lead to success and failure, and helps guide administrators with data-driven recommendations that improve retention and keep students enrolled.
