Harnessing the Power of Your Data

Jenzabar Retention brings together each student’s information from disparate academic and administrative systems across your campus to create comprehensive student profiles. The result is a 360-degree view of each student—from their academic performance and extracurricular engagement to their financial aid and demographic information—providing you with deep insights into potential risk factors and probabilities of success.

Jenzabar Retention’s predictive modeling functionality is customized to reflect the unique characteristics of your student population. Leverage predictive modeling to identify a student’s chance of persistence then create a targeted intervention plan. Regardless of whether at-risk students face academic, social, or emotional challenges, you can prevent their premature departure and promote their success.

What I really like about Jenzabar Retention is that everything is right at my fingertips. I can easily see who a student’s advisor is; how they’re doing in their classes, their attendance, their cohort year; and who has reached out to that student... our effectiveness and efficiency is greatly enhanced.

Filling in the Missing Pieces

Research suggests that addressing a series of “soft” factors around student behaviors and attitudes greatly impacts a student’s chances of positive outcomes. The Student Success Survey uncovers the type of non-cognitive influences that negatively impact a student’s success. Addressing these influences can increase the accuracy of your institution’s performance and persistence predictions by as much as 40%.

Through an online process of self-reporting, the Student Success Survey captures, scores, and analyzes student risk data across seven key psychometric scales. Campus-wide summary reports and individual student reports allow you to create broader intervention strategies that can then be enacted at the individual student level, making them ultimately more impactful. Use these reports to identify the precise type of support services each student needs in order to achieve success—even before they arrive on campus.
