Enrollment Management Predictive Modeling Workshop Hosted by Dickinson College and Rapid Insight
Dickinson College along with Rapid Insight are hosting a one-day, hands-on workshop on predictive enrollment modeling on the campus of Dickinson College on August 4th. There is no cost to attend but it is limited to the first 20 institutions. It is possible (and even recommended) for two or three people to attend from a single institution.
The computer lab can accommodate up to 40 individuals. Additional seats available on a first come, first served basis. The objective of the workshop is to familiarize people with Rapid insight Veera Predict software, share modeling techniques and practices and to walk through the modeling process (using your own admissions data). By the end of the day participants will have 1) a better understanding of predictive modeling and 2) a preliminary model to develop for their own use for enrollment management.General topic areas of discussion will include: an introduction to the Veera Predict software, preparing data for modeling, avoiding modeling mistakes and modeling best practices. These discussions will be formal or informal depending on the needs of the collective group.
The computer lab will be set up with Veera Predict software for your use. Or, if you already have Veera Predict, you can bring it loaded on your laptop. Participants are highly encouraged to bring their own admissions data (CSV, Excel, or SPSS format) on a thumb drive or be able to access it remotely via the internet. Both wired and wireless internet access will be available. Lunch will be a no-host event with several options within walking distance of campus. If needed, a list of hotels can be provided for those who choose to stay overnight.
