Blackboard Predict

Many students who meet higher education admissions standards still struggle in their classes. First generation students from low-income families are particularly at risk, not because they lack ability, but because they lack the 'know-how' necessary to navigate complex institutions of higher education. Intensive advising works, but only if advisors are able to reach out in time to make a difference. Blackboard Predict provides educators with the timely information they need to help students complete college at a higher rate, more quickly, and at a lower cost.
