Faculty - The Retention Center in Blackboard

 

The Retention Center is a tool that is available in Blackboard that helps you identify which students in your course are at risk. Use the information to communicate with students that are struggling and to keep track of patterns over time. You can also use the Retention Center to monitor students who are doing well in your course by customizing the Retention Center rules. 

This article will show you how to access the Retention Center and what the information means in the Retention Center.
