The Office of Institutional Effectiveness continues to provide the campus community with the tools needed to support academic and administrative units resulting in student success.
We encourage all faculty and staff to use Ellucian CRM Advise to access need-to-know student information, enter notes regarding student interactions, refer students to remote support services, and maintain open communication channels through intentionally designed outreach efforts. Advise is also an effective tool for capturing dynamic data and communicating with the campus community.
As a cloud-based tool, Advise is accessible from any device using your Kean email and password.

Retention Management Suite Plus (CSI/MYSA/SYSA)
The Retention Management Suite Plus consists of the College Student Inventory (CSI), Mid-Year Student Assessment (MYSA), and Second-Year Student Assessment (SYSA). Administered in the fall semester, these non-cognitive assessments allow faculty, staff and administrators with an opportunity to directly connect students to support services to support student success. For example, if a student indicates that they are interested in studying abroad, exploring majors, or learning more about Financial Aid, we can connect them to the appropriate person to assist them in finding answers and receiving support.
Students engage with their CSI and MYSA results in their GE-1000 (Transition to Kean T2K) and their SYSA results in GE-3000, reflecting on their past experiences and setting SMART Goals for their first year at Kean and beyond. Please find a list of the Top 10 Indicators for the FA20 College Student Inventory listed below.
