Assessing the Impact of COVID-19

Set up and deploy the brief, seven-minute surveys to gain insight into students’ experiences since leaving campus.

COVID-19 Campus Outcomes Survey: Administer this brief survey to gather insight from students on their overall experience in light of the quick pivot to remote learning. Topics include: satisfaction with academics and campus services; interactions with peers, faculty and staff; sense of belonging; overall perceptions of the institution; and plans to return. Use the insights to evaluate how the quick transition to remote learning impacted students’ experience.

COVID-19 Intervention Needs Survey: Utilize this brief survey to identify students who may be struggling in the online environment, as well as potential retention issues due to the move to remote learning. The survey focuses on topics of particular importance in an online environment: managing coursework, motivation, feelings of connectedness, as well as students’ plans to return.

Insights Solution

Designed to supplement existing achievement and retention solutions, iClicker Insights provides immediate, to-the-minute insights on three key components proven to predict student persistence: Student Attendance, Student Engagement, and Student Satisfaction.

Any individual component of iClicker Insights – or combination of the three – can be adopted.



Easily scale attendance reporting across the institution using Geolocation



Identify gaps in student understanding and engagement in class

Student Attendance

Class attendance is proven to be one of the earliest and most significant indicators of student retention. Using iClicker with Geolocation to scale attendance reporting across campus provides insights into potential patterns or anomalies in student attendance that may negatively impact students’ success in their courses or indicate the need for additional support.

Student Engagement

Tracking academic engagement provides a wealth of information at both the student and course levels, but interpreting this information in a succinct, actionable way can be overwhelming without the right tools. iClicker Insights makes strategic use of the data generated each day via iClicker to pinpoint when students may benefit from additional academic or skills-based support, and to provide deeper insight into engagement trends within courses or across departments.

Student Satisfaction

Academic habits are important, but do not paint a complete picture of retention risk. Created by assessment experts, iClicker Insight’s research-based surveys assess students’ self-reported satisfaction on critical non-cognitive factors like homesickness and campus engagement, to provide crucial context for potential intervention.

"We are able to move beyond simply recording attendance and think strategically about how we help students work through issues that affect their class attendance."

- R. Crews, University of Memphis

"Financial aid met with a student who identified financial concerns on the survey and was able to offer her additional grant funds, along with an emergency grant application covered her balance in full."

- University of Missouri

"The best thing that could happen from an administrative standpoint. It pulls data from all classes into one place. I can look at the attendance reports, click on the class, get information. That’s really awesome."

- H. Akoh, Atlanta Metro State College

"A residential hall coordinator met with a student who shared that at the time of the survey they were struggling to make connections with other students and find an organization that they could join. Since that time they have joined hall government and met more students. They reported that they are doing well now and are not concerned any longer."

- University of Missouri

"[iClicker Insights] makes it easy for faculty to support student attendance regardless of the class size. We are using it in classes of 20 and classes of 300 with equal success. We are able to emphasize student attendance from the first day of class.”
