Why use Skyfactor Mapworks?

Key differentiators & advantages of Skyfactor Mapworks

  • Mapworks: Research-Based. Adaptable & Affordable.
    Mapworks is a proven student retention and success system that has the flexibility to adapt to the needs of each institution that it partners with, schools like yours. Our unique, accurate, and highly-customizable risk predictor incorporates information from a variety of sources — and delivers critical insights to you in an easy-to-use dashboard. Quickly see which students need attention and resources now – before it’s too late.

  • Our Methodology Sets Us Apart.
    Your success is our priority. In addition to setting up a plan for implementing the Mapworks system at your institution, our team of experienced higher education professionals will sit down with your stakeholders to understand the current situation and goals –particularly in the areas of student success, retention, and completion — and to recommend best practices for establishing or improving programs that support the needs of your students. The Mapworks Analytics and Research team will also use that information to select a best-fit algorithm from our library of rigorously-tested models. The result is a solution designed to fit the unique needs of your institution – all at an affordable price point.

  • Predictive Models that Improve With Age.
    The characteristics and academic outcomes of your institution are not identical to others in the same town, state, or region. Why should you settle for predictive analytics that are designed to meet the needs of the “average” school? If you suspect that there are success factors that are unique to your institution, our Analytics and Research Team can customize the algorithm used by Mapworks to predict student risk at your institution, using the data that you have collected. Our library of algorithms is tested and updated annually to maintain accuracy – and to help each higher education institution achieve its student success goals more quickly.
