Hi,

I am afraid we do not have a considerable flow of discretionary money so I have made do with Access, part of Office, and it has worked fairly well.  We also have the informal log in sheets and I have my secretary (a part timer) take each set from the previous semester and enter the date into the database.  Once in there, you can do all sorts of lists.  We can see how many students by classification visited us with freshman numbers usually the highest, how many students by subject area, and how many students by amount of contact time.  We then group those numbers of hours - 0 to2, 2.5 to 4, and so forth.  Of course,  wait for the surprise, the more hours tutored the better the semester grade.

We like to use this information as an advertising tool as well.  When students can see the hard core stats, they often see the real benefit of coming to a learning center.  And it is amazing the number of contact we have at the end of an academic year.

Hope this helps a bit.

Subject: Tracking Student Contacts

Hello all

In reviewing current procedures, we are looking to revamp how we track student contacts/interventions.  Each support specialist logs contacts informally, but we want to be able to have a database that compile all contacts so we can produce reports and substantiate services.  

Would anyone be willing to provide insight as to how your center tracks and records this data?  What have you found is helpful?  What does not work?

Thanks and have a great day!
