Predictive Model

The office of Testing Services at NIU has created a predictive model that identifies newly admitted students who are likely to be successful in their first year at NIU, as well as students who are likely to need additional assistance.  The model alerts student success specialists, academic advisors, as well as other pertinent faculty and staff to students based on their admissions data, course enrollment, and other predictive attributes. Predictions of a student’s chance to be in good academic standing as well as their chances of re-enrollment to the university is calculated based upon other NIU students with similar profile items and their outcomes.
