Capability Analysis Tool to boost student completion rates
COMPLETIONCAT® is a Capability Analysis Tool that assists all staff – whether in a vocational, higher educational or dual-sector organisation – to contribute to improving student retention and increasing course completions.
Why use COMPLETIONCAT®?
COMPLETIONCAT® performs a number of functions:
- it analyses the organisation’s approach to managing the complete student experience – the ‘life cycle’, from initial information for prospective students, to enrolment, engagement, learning, retention and course completion
- it examines the organisation’s culture, staff roles and responsibilities, and the corporate systems as they relate to the whole student experience
- it generates data, reports and directions for ongoing professional learning activities that can underpin a whole-of-organisation strategy for improving completion rates and managing in an environment where payments are linked to completions.
Student retention and course completion are influenced by a diverse set of factors that do not act independently of each other. Often, there are multiple factors responsible for a student withdrawal and non-completion.
By analysing the whole organisation, rather than focusing on a single section, COMPLETIONCAT® allows organisations to examine the entire student experience life cycle; helping to improve the experience at each stage of the journey, cumulatively working to improve retention and completion rates.
ACER can supply your organisation with either the vocational education (VET), dual sector, or higher education version of COMPLETIONCAT®, or multiple versions if you have staff across the two sectors.
