Research to Drive Student Persistence

Turn Persistence Theory Into Action

Backed by nearly 4 decades of research, our Adaptive AI Framework operationalizes an effective approach to identifying and supporting the factors that lead to student persistence and retention. Additionally, we are constantly listening to student feedback and adjusting our AI based on current trends and natural language detection.

Incorporating the Student Voice into Student Success

We believe that the most important voice in the conversation about student success is that of the student. To ensure our approach was meeting their needs we took a moment to ask students who are enrolled at our partner institutions what they thought about their interactions with their school's Adaptive AI chatbot.
