Enhancement of Tutoring Services and Student Retention using TutorTrac

Director of the Academic Support Center, Dr. Isidro Grau, will discuss implementation and use of TutorTrac software in the Academic Support Center.

TutorTrac, a product of the RedRock software corporation, is a complete management software system for academic tutoring centers. In fall 2013, TutorTrac was installed for use in the UHD Academic Support Center, which provides tutoring in the areas of writing, reading, math, and statistics. TutorTrac is a fully web-based program that retrieves current class information from Banner, so students’ names and course registrations are readily available. This assists the Academic Support Center staff to determine exactly who attends tutoring sessions in support of specific courses and/or course sections. In addition, TutorTrac helps eliminate student name confusion, misspelled names, and inaccurate course information. Having up to date information allows Academic Support Center staff to select the classes students are receiving tutoring in as well as review tutor appointments that are initiated by the Sage Early Alert System.

TutorTrac has enhanced both how the Academic Support Center reports utilization of student tutoring services and analysis of student retention in targeted barrier courses. In addition, TutorTrac is a unified information system, which allows for secure student data sharing between the Advising & Mentoring Dept, Sage Early Alert System, Participating Academic Deans, Chairs, and Faculty, the Dept of Institutional Effectiveness, and Academic Support Center Staff.
