Why should I choose Othot’s Retention Analytics?2018-05-15T19:15:49+00:00

Othot’s platform was created to take the cost and complexity out of predictive analytics. Our models are built from scratch for each customer to identify which students are most likely to persist and which interventions are predicted to increase the probability of graduation. We build and deliver our models quickly, so you’re up and running in weeks, not years.

Are the models you build the same for each institution?2018-05-06T20:39:27+00:00

No, our models are customized for each institution. The first step in our process is to identify the “High Impact Questions” (HIQs) that matter most for your school, such as, “What is the likelihood that a student will enroll?” Then our team creates a machine learning model built around answering that question. Othot’s predictive engines also combine a school’s historical data with external data and can be customized to create predictions for a school’s unique “What-If” scenarios, such as specific campus visit types or scholarships.

This proprietary approach produces predictive intelligence that offers a more comprehensive solution than other analytic programs.

What kind of data do you need to create models in the Othot platform?2018-05-15T19:11:13+00:00

We recommend that you have two to three years of historical data student data to build a model. In addition, we also source external data to build your models. External data includes demographic, socio-economic, geographic, environmental and behavioral.

How long is the onboarding process?2018-05-06T20:39:47+00:00
