Efficacy Measurement

Maximize the impact of your programs by understanding what’s working and for whom.

WHAT’S REALLY WORKING?

Institutions are faced with difficult choices when it comes to improving student initiatives:
1
Spend weeks evaluating student interventions using year-old data
2
Spend months running expensive studies and pilots
3
Try improving initiatives with inactionable or misleading data
4
Keep doing more of the same without knowing the impact
Most institutions don’t have the time, money, resources, or runway for options 1, 2, or 3. So they are forced to let someone else’s best practice – and status quo – reign. But the cost of that can be steep.


ANALYSIS BASED ON
1,000+ INITIATIVES RUN BY 55 INSTITUTIONS

With results like this, it makes sense that the average 6-year graduation rate hovers around 50%, and is much lower for some students. Black and Hispanic students have an average 6-year graduation rate of 38% and 46%, respectively. Similarly, the average 3-year graduation rate hovers around 20%. Without the proper level of clarity around how your programs are impacting your students, it may be impossible to improve the outcomes those programs have.

IMPACT GIVES YOU THE CLARITY YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR

With Civitas Learning’s efficacy measurement solution Impact®, you can finally identify ways to improve student programs without making a lose-lose choice when it comes to understanding them.

Using rigorous, prediction-based propensity-score matching analysis, you can finally understand the real impact of your student initiatives at scale.

Easily answer questions like:

  • Is this student success program improving retention or are the students already likely to return the only ones participating?
  • Is this program more impactful for some students than others?
  • Is this program only effective after it’s been used a few times? How many times?

Use this newfound clarity to:

  • Better target student success initiatives
  • Expand your most impactful services
  • Advertise high value, underutilized programs

The Outcomes You Want

“It’s hard for institutions to stop engaging in practices that have long been part of their history and culture. The only way to do this is to have clarity around what’s really working, and what’s not. Civitas Learning is now a foundational part of how we have these conversations about our students.”

– Cindy Pemberton, Deputy Provost
    University of Missouri-Kansas City

“We were surprised by the differences across student segments. It was a level of analysis our team was unable to drill into prior to Impact.”
