Event Description

Collect and Use Existing Sources of Data to Address Student Persistence and Completion Challenges

Untapped sources of existing data from even the most overlooked programs and services can contribute to student persistence and completion efforts. However, college and university faculty, staff, and administrators fail to collect and understand the implications of existing data that can help them reach their student persistence and completion goals on their campus.

In this session, expert speaker Jerald Henderson will promote the need for a holistic approach towards collecting and understanding data that is provided by all campus units and offices to collectively improve student persistence and completion goals. Jerald will provide you with a better understanding of how to uncover hidden data sources on your campus. In doing so, your institution can obtain a better picture of what is impacting students’ educational experience which in turn can affect student persistence and completion outcomes.

Understanding existing data that is readily available can also help your institution with future planning, programming, and leveraging resources that will have the greatest impact on those students who might be at greater risk of withdrawing from the institution. You will learn to identify key stakeholders who can provide you data to understand the student persistence and completion challenges targeted groups on campus face. This session is especially important for campus personnel (both staff and administrators) who consider themselves ‘new’ to data collection and student persistence and completion efforts.

Session Highlights

You will learn:

  • How to identify and understand the use of existing data that contribute to student persistence and completion rates
  • How to identify untapped sources of data that can help the institution understand which students are at-risk of leaving the institution
  • How to identify and understand through data collection and analysis which student groups should be targeted
  • How to determine which data collection methods are appropriate to determine program effectiveness
  • How to expand campus involvement as you collect more data to reach your institutional goals
  • How to determine if current programming is sufficient in addressing student persistence and completion challenges based on existing data
  • How to examine at a deeper level what the ‘data story’ is telling you about students, both those who persist and those who are the most at-risk of withdrawing
