Improving student outcomes through an institutional approach that strategically leverages technology

Rapid Insight is designed to help your entire institution use data to drive decisions across the student relationship lifecycle. The software makes it easy to build predictive models for recruitment, enrollment, retention, and alumni giving. Providing easy access to any data sources and all student information systems, the technology does not require any significant IT resources to support.

Over 200 institutions across the country are using Rapid Insight tools to become data driven through predictive analytics and streamlined data analysis. Here are some use cases:

Enrollment Modeling

  • Predict each applicant’s probability of enrolling. Use the scores to focus your recruiting efforts, project class size and have an immediate impact on financial outlay.
  • Quickly run ad hoc analyses and view relationships between enrollment likelihood and other variables like SAT scores, high school GPA, gender, state, major, and the distance the student lives from your institution.

Student Retention Modeling

  • Increase student success by identifying at-risk students and providing them the support they need.
  • Identify trends and profiles of students who transfer or drop out.
  • Determine overall expected enrollment for next year based on this year’s class.

Institutional Research

  • Cleanse and aggregate data for use in reports and dashboards without the need for a programming background.
  • Create repeatable analytic processes to automate reports such as IPEDs.
  • Run ad hoc analyses or scheduled reports.
