Persistence Plus is an exciting new evidence-based technological tool that provides personalized, interactive “nudges” via text message, rooted in the principles of behavioral psychology, to support students in their post-secondary education.
Students who use Persistence Plus:
- have higher persistence to the next term;
- higher persistence to the next year;
- are more likely to seek math tutoring; and
- 95% of students receiving nudges recommend that new students receive mobile nudges.
As part of the two-year initiative, Persistence Plus is being customized for the college students participating in these 36 programs and implemented starting January 2018 for the first cohort, and August 2018 for the second cohort.
