Freshman Retention in the Fulton Schools of Engineering

Education icon, disabled. A purple mortarboard.

The goal of this project is to implement regression models for predicting the likelihood of a freshman student in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering to return in the following spring semester. This research is built off the analysis done by Arafat and Pedroza in the spring of 2018. The models that are being created will be used by the ASU advising team to identify students that are at risk of not returning to the Fulton Schools. The prediction value can facilitate the advising team in concentrating their efforts.
