A student’s ability to succeed in higher education is not solely based on entrance exams and test scores. Research indicates that you can retain first-year students—especially at-risk or underprepared students—by helping them improve essential non-cognitive skills to increase academic grit. Do you know which non-cognitive skills to target and how?

Join us online to learn how to promote persistence and performance by helping first-year students apply assessment-based strategies to improve four key non-cognitive skills:

  • Self-Efficacy
  • Academic engagement
  • Educational commitment
  • Campus engagement
