Investigating the Effectiveness of Landmark College Supports in Improving Student Outcomes for Diverse Student Profiles

A collaborative team of researchers from the Landmark College Institute for Research and Training (LCIRT) and Dr. George Dupaul’s research team at Lehigh University is examining several years of archival data from Landmark College’s databases as part of a study on the effectiveness of support services for students with ADHD. The team has been working on the data since 2012 and has completed the task of extracting and coding the data in preparation for Hierarchical Linear Modeling analysis.

A preliminary visual analysis of the data shows differences in the effectiveness of various support services for this student population with some indication that long-term coaching support can lead to significant improvements in student performance. The long-term goal of this project is to provide data that can be used to better customize both the timing and nature of student supports based on individual student profiles.
