KCPS and Community College Student Engagement Whitepaper

Ryan McGrew, an economics analyst for Kuder, has completed a white paper that highlights substantive evidence characterizing academic and career guidance activities facilitated by use of the Kuder Career Planning System® (KCPS) as a highly beneficial form of student engagement at community colleges.

The Kuder Career Planning System® and Student Engagement: Improving Retention, Completion, and Academic Outcomes among Community College Students explores research that yields the following insights with respect to community colleges’ approach to retaining students:

  • A definitive link exists between system use and activities that are conducive to student engagement in the form of active and collaborative learning.
  • The KCPS lends itself to group completion of academic tasks and student-instructor discussion.
  • Utilization of the KCPS in helping to catalyze active learning and provide support for students positively contributes to the retention and success of newly enrolled community college students.
