The Consortium for Student Retention Data Exchange

The Consortium for Student Retention Data Exchange at the University of Oklahoma is a consortium of two-year and four-year institutions dedicated to achieving the highest levels of student success through collaboratively sharing data, knowledge, and innovation. Founded in 1994, the CSRDE is probably best known for its annual retention studies which provide executives at two-year and four-year institutions with access to timely, comprehensive, comparative benchmarking data on retention and graduation, not available from any other source.

The CSRDE is about more than data…it’s about know how.

The CSRDE's National Symposium on Student Retention, held each fall, provides faculty, staff, and administrators an opportunity to network with colleagues who are also interested in student success. With access to the Effective Retention Practices Knowledgebase they can continue to interact with colleagues while they retrieve the latest peer-reviewed research and model retention strategies. The consortium also offers professional continuing education opportunities which can help committee members work as an effective team and develop the strategic retention planning skills needed to move your institution forward.

What we do:

We provide CSRDE members from two-year and four-year institutions with comprehensive retention and graduation benchmarks that cannot be acquired from any other source including IPEDS. In return for providing data, members receive a comprehensive report with benchmarks, and a customized peer report on 5-20 participating peers.

We also facilitate networking and sharing of best practices through annual retention conferences, e-communications, and our Community of Practice.

 

bullet

How we do it:

Members submit their data electronically using Excel spreadsheets.

Four-Year Institutions. Members provide aggregate data on ten first-year student cohorts, following them from the 2nd year through 11th year continuation rates as well as the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, and 10th year graduation rates.

Two-Year Institutions. Members track the 1st year through 10th year completion and continuation rates of ten first-time, full-time and part-time cohorts of students.
