Using Data to Improve Retention Rates at Career Schools

Posted by Laurie Woychick on 2/24/15 2:00 PM

Stop_Flying_BlindAccording to our recent Career School Industry Survey, over 60% of the schools surveys highlighted retention and graduation as two of the top three success metrics they are measured on. There are a number of tactics career schools can use to increase retention, and thereby increase graduation rates, but they all point back to data. Without a clear understanding of the student demographics and individual challenges, it is difficult to keep hundreds or thousands of students on track and engaged with limited campus advisors. Unfortunately, many campus advisors are flying blind, only able to focus on the students who are asking for help, and may be missing some critical opportunities for intervening before a student disengages.
