Starfish by Hobsons Awarded Two Technology Trailblazer Awards by Complete College America

Tactical Analytics

Starfish uses multiple predictive scores; Retention, Completion and Velocity, to create a more comprehensive view of the student and their unique success factors. Retaining students is critical, but knowing if they are likely to complete and how fast they are moving towards completion are also imperative to drive them to realize their educational goals. Built directly into the Advising/Coaching interface, these tools enable practitioners to drive action to assist students by providing:

  • Individual student risk factors to institutional interventions based on a scholarship-based framework.
  • Individual scores for likelihood of retention, along with both positive and negative factors for each student.
  • A comprehensive view of student risk with additional scores for likelihood of completion, velocity and other success markers.
  • Individual action for a single student, or automate system-based actions based on analytics factors and scores.
