Retention rates have become a key focus of Higher Education administrators over the past several years. With a focus on not only recruiting new students but on retaining existing students these admins will need access to key information. This information will have to be developed into reports from data that comes from each institutions’ Student Information System (BANNER, Colleague, etc,.). Below you can see a screenshot of an example Student Retention Rate Dashboard. This dashboard is accessible from www.iDashboards.com if you would like to interact with it! Across the top of the dashboard, the end user can select values from the input parameters to slice and dice the retention rates by Gender, Ethnicity, Age Group, and Campus.
