How can you increase the faculty buy-in of Jenzabar Retention and its usefulness as a student success tool? Question: Take an existing process that involves all faculty and create a new process within Jenzabar Retention that addresses the same issue. Here’s how we did it… Answer:
Students with a midterm grade <2.00 or earning any ‘F’ grades ◦ Student receives instructions to meet with academic advisor to discuss action plan ◦ Advisor to complete Advisor Recommendation Form during that meeting ◦ Student to sign and return Advisor Recommendation Form to Registrar’s Office Midterm grade intervention process
Advisor Recommendation Form
Results: Paper-based process
What was the problem? Paper-based process ◦ Advisors losing interest in the process ◦ Students losing forms Millennial generation ◦ Little interest in paper-based processes ◦ Short, to-the-point, technology-based interactions becoming the trend Phone call Text
Midterm early alerts ◦ Midterm grades broken into three concern types Midterm: or F Midterm: 1.3 – 1.79 Midterm: 1.29 or below ◦ An Early Alert is entered for each student falling in one of these groups. (Batch entry feature is a lifesaver!) Note: you could utilize the automatic alert feature if you just want all <2.0 students to have a midterm alert generated. ◦ A follow-up is assigned to the student’s academic advisor. ◦ After discussing midterm grades with the student, the advisor enters intervention notes into the alert. Jenzabar Retention to the rescue!
Follow-up assignment, cont.
Results: Jenzabar Retention Process Students
