2 Academic Advisement Initiative  Retention Alert Update  Probation Outreach  Faculty Advisement Program Update  Withdraw Outreach  Developmental Reading & Writing Retest

3 Retention Alert: Overview & Participation  Spring 2009 : Purchased Datatel Retention module.  Summer 2009: The system was piloted.  August 2009: The Program was implemented.  Spring 2010 : A new link was created and implemented from the Angel Platform to MineOnline for easier access for faculty as well as a quick link from class rosters.  Fall 2011: More robust reporting tools.  Reflected is a 43% increase in referrals over previous year. Fall 2009 Spring 2010 Summer 2010 Fall 2010 Spring 2011 Students Referred

4 Probation Outreach: Overview & Participation ParticipantsNon Participants Spring Fall Spring Fall Spring  The spring 2011 population is smaller because the list generated included all students on probation, rather than those who were on probation as a result of the previous semester, and included those enrolled in any developmental class, rather than reading/writing only, as a result it took time to “clean” the list and we were unable to reach out to as many students.

11 Reading/Writing Retest: Overview  Data showed little correlation between assessment test scores and course success in reading and writing.  Anecdotal observations suggested students often did not perform “their best” on the assessment.  June 2010 began requiring any student testing into developmental reading and writing level one to retest.  Goal is to more accurately place students into developmental and/or college level coursework, thus improving their opportunity for success.
