What a Student Success Network Looks Like

Does your school have an early alert and intervention program for struggling students? If so, you're in good company. According to a recent study, over 90 percent of colleges and universities use some form of early alert system to flag at-risk students and prioritize them to receive additional support.

But, your early alert program is only as good as the data you put into it. That's why it's more important than ever that each component of your student-success network—from assessment to counseling to third-party tools—is designed with early alert and intervention goals in mind.

Tutor.com, a certified Canvas partner, is doing its part by giving clients unprecedented visibility into student challenges through our unique Predictive Insights™ platform. With Predictive Insights, our partner schools can:

  • Receive real-time, early alert notifications when students demonstrate key risk factors (like a lack of relevant prerequisite knowledge) during an online tutoring session.
  • Analyze the most common topics and subtopics where at-risk students sought help - this will help identify the areas that need extra support.
  • Review or replay every tutoring session to see exactly how students connect with tutors in a one-on-one situation.

Of course, any successful early alert and intervention model will include far more input than just online tutoring, such as: assessments, student and faculty evaluations, and LMS analytics. To learn more about tying these diverse data sources together into a cohesive and effective early alert platform, register for “Let Data Be Your Compass,” a free webinar on November 3rd,  in partnership with Belhaven University.

Hope to see you there!
