The first three sections of this guide—Comprehensive Student Supports, Data Management for Student Success, and Behavioral Science Insights and Human-Centered Design—have short, informational videos to introduce these topics and the evidence base for these approaches.
TIP: When you enter a section, begin by watching the video or videos. The tools and resources in the sections assume you have viewed the videos and will build on the information presented in them.
The fourth section, Return on Investment, features MDRC’s ROI Tool, a free, interactive web application that allows community college administrators to estimate the costs and revenues associated with implementing an intervention at their college based on customized regional prices, college expenditures, tuition prices, and state funding models.
Each section also includes links to relevant MDRC project pages that can provide more details about the tools and resources provided in this toolkit. These project pages have a wealth of information, including published reports, briefs, and other resources developed by their project teams.
