- Student Watchlist
Retention Risk Modeling
Identify retention risks for entire cohorts of students using characteristics or behavioral outcomes that are correlated with retention.
Understand which segments of your student population are at the greatest risk of not completing their degree on time. Completion time frames are customized for 2-year and 4-year institutions.
Create a cohort of at-risk students for export, or develop workflows so advisors, faculty, and staff can take action in Starfish.
Course and Program Effectiveness
Identify stumbling blocks related to particular courses, instructors and sections, and make changes as needed. Find savings by redesigning courses or collapsing sections.
- Course Outcomes
- Retention Impact
- Detailed Data Analysis
Examine student success in specific courses or groups of courses by identifying those with the lowest average grades and highest withdrawal and retake rates.
Success or failure in courses can have a major impact on student retention at the institution, and that impact is greater for some courses than others. Identify the classes that have the biggest positive or negative correlation with retention and student success.
Detailed Data Analysis
Slice the data on courses to see the impact courses have on different students from across the institutions to identify trends by degree program or specific student cohorts.
Historical Measures and Benchmarks
Analyze data to understand trends with students, programs, and drivers of retention and completion. Compare performance over time and with other institutions, and see which actions have the greatest impact on strategic goals.
- Historical Trends
- Peer Benchmarking
Track performance over time to demonstrate progress, spot trends, and identify areas for improvement.
Compare your institution’s performance against similar colleges and universities to provide context for decision making.

Dashboards and Reporting
Integrated dashboards and reports give users access to insights on everything from student and course data to historical trends and peer benchmarks. Datasets can also be exported for more powerful custom analyses.
Integration with LMS, SIS, and More
Starfish mines data about student performance recorded within technologies already in place across your institution. As your institution grows and changes, additional data strengthen the predictive models.
Data Science Support
Hobsons’ data scientists and Strategic Consultants will partner with your institution to unlock the trends in your data that drive student success.
