In this session, the presenters, (all from the College of Arts and Sciences at WMU), describe a pilot project that attempts to predict the likelihood of student persistence based on a variety of factors, including non-cognitive assessment. Led by a graduate assistant who designed the survey tool and analyzed the data, they discussed the pros and cons of such an approach and the benefits of doing such work for the professional development of graduate students.
