By the time you read this, the dust will hopefully have settled after a hectic start of term — and all is well for your new students.

Except it may not be.

In my last blog post, I wrote about how dropout rates are highest during the first few months of a new academic year and how you can make student life easier in order to improve retention rates.

But with limited resources at your disposal, and an increased focus on student engagement, how can you find out which of your new students are struggling?

The good news is that you already have a huge amount of data that you can use. Every time a student interacts with one of your online systems, they leave a valuable indicator of engagement.
