Closing the loop
Real-time insights enable effective intervention and targeted support at the earliest signs of struggle
How it works
Built to integrate seamlessly with exisiting achievement and retention solutions, Cirque by Macmillan Learning empowers faculty, staff and administrators to identify students who may benefit from additional support to improve their likelihood of success in a course or program of study.
Used in conjunction with existing student success solutions, Cirque provides administrators with a more holistic view of students’ experiences—both inside and outside the classroom. Whereas traditional student support systems focus on summative views of students’ experiences, Cirque provides immediate, to-the-minute insights on key components of student engagement and acclimation to campus life.
Cirques insights are powered by three key factors proven to predict student persistence: Student Attendance, Student Engagement, and Student Satisfaction.
Class attendance is proven to be one of the earliest and most significant indicators of student retention. All courses with iClicker Attendance enabled have access to insights into potential patterns or anomalies in student attendance that may negatively impact a student's success in the course or indicate the need for additional support.
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 an overwhelming proposition without the right tools. Cirque makes strategic use of the data classes generate every 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.
What stories can an absence tell? Academic habits are but one measure of a successful college student; however, they cannot paint a complete picture on their own. Created by college educators and persistence assessment experts, Cirque's pre-built retention surveys collect and assess students’ self-reported satisfaction on critical non-cognitive factors, like homesickness and campus engagement, to provide crucial context for your outreach efforts and student support networks.Learn More
Cirque provides easily accessible, formative insights on student attendance, engagement, and satisfaction to build a more complete, actionable understanding of your students’ day-to-day experiences. These insights are presented through a suite of targeted reports to expedite interventions and streamline oversight of department and course performance. Cirque's reported insights make it easy to monitor Students of Interest, Courses of Interest, and critical noncognitive factors.Learn More
Students of Interest
Cirque leverages its Student Attendance and Student Engagement reports to pinpoint Students of Interest—those who might need additional attention or personalized support—as early as possible in the semester, and then provides alerts to guide outreach. Our powerful formula fast-tracks faculty, staff and administrative interventions before an issue becomes a real problem.
