The Sanity Quiz
  • Do several of your students complete your intake
    process but then quit after a couple class
    sessions?
  • Do your teachers find themselves constantly
    juggling between teaching existing students and
    enrolling new ones?
  • Do your teachers never have as much time as they
    would like to help students set realistic and
    meaningful goals?

4
If so
  • You may be suffering from the
  • All Things to All People Syndrome
  • quite common among adult educators.

5
Flexibility gone bad
  • Flexibility has been the cornerstone of adult
    education.

6
But even flexibility has its limits
Its all about BALANCE!

And
Making First Impressions Count

Workshop Objectives
  • You will
  • Review research related to intake processes,
  • Assess your current orientation and intake
    procedures, and
  • Explore options and resources for strengthening
    those procedures.

Managed Intake
For our discussions global term referring to
program orientation, student intake, and initial
assessment
Open Intake Managed Intake
No designated time Conducted whenever new students arrive The drop in approach Regularly scheduled orientation and intake sessions Often conducted in group settings followed by individual student interviews Can be conducted as centralized or onsite intake
10
Managed Enrollment (next session)
Open Enrollment Managed Enrollment
No designated start and end date of classes Students enroll anytime throughout the year The Bermuda Triangle approach Classes are scheduled for specific cycles with beginning and ending dates. Students can re-enroll for subsequent cycles.

The Power of Managed Intake
  • What does the research
  • tell us?

Toward a New Pluralism in ABE/ESOL Classrooms
Robert Kegan
  • The interpersonal relationships that these adult
  • peers developed in the cohort made a critical
  • difference to their
  • academic learning,
  • emotional and psychological wellbeing, and
  • ability to broaden their perspectives.

The Critical First Three Weeks Allen Quigley
  • First three weeks are critical to
  • student persistence
  • Situational barriers
  • Institutional barriers
  • Attitudinal barriers

15
The Adult Learner Persistence Study NCSALL (John
Comings)
  • To support learner persistence, we need to help
    students
  • Manage their negative forces
  • Build self efficacy
  • Set realistic, meaningful, and achievable goals
  • See the progress they are making.

Managed Orientation and Intake
17
The First Impression
  • Orientation
  • Provides information and assistance to make
    informed decisions
  • Great opportunity to get students excited and
    motivated
  • Intake
  • Involves gathering background information
  • Skill assessments for placement and diagnosis

18
What are you doing now?
Page 38
  • Activity 1
  • Take a few minutes to complete worksheet 1
    Student Orientation and Intake Self-Assessment.
  • Youll refer back to it later in the workshop.

19
You only have one chance to make a good first
impression.
Orientation and Intake
  • What should it include?
  • How can it be scheduled?

Conducted during 3-4 hour group orientation
Conducted during scheduled follow-up

Managed Intake Delivery Options
  • Centralized Intake
  • All new student intake is conducted at one
    location.
  • Student information is forwarded to class sites
    upon completion.
  • Onsite Intake
  • Student intake is conducted at each class site on
    a scheduled basis.

  • Need to adapt
  • Audiotapes and materials in various languages
  • Picture-based needs assessments and learning
    style inventories

25
Activity 2 Stop and Reflect Time
  • At your table, discuss the following
  • Refer back to your student orientation survey.
  • Which of the components of the managed intake
    model that you are not doing now do you find most
    interesting?
  • Is this component something you would be able to
    do?
  • If not, what would need to change to allow you to
    do it?

26
But what if
  • There is no staff available to conduct managed
    intake?
  • Use a part-time instructor as the centralized
    assessor.
  • Use volunteer tutors to work with existing
    students while teacher conducts managed intake.
  • Make existing students aware that one three-hour
    class session each month will be designated for
    independent computerized study while teacher
    conducts managed intake.

27
But what if
  • If I dont enroll students on the spot, theyll
    never come back?
  • Committed students will come back! The who
    fail to return is significantly smaller than the
    who dropped out after a few classes.
  • Professionalize your program. Give potential
    students an appointment card.

28
But what if
  • Students cant/wont wait until the next
    scheduled intake session?
  • Employ the on any given Monday routine enroll
    new students on one particular morning or
    afternoon each week.
  • Plan for making exceptions for specialized
    circumstances.

29
Planning Next Steps
  • Share the information with your teachers and
    engage them in the decision making process.
  • Use the Managed Intake Decision Points as a
    reference tool.

Managed Intake Decision Points
Page 39
How will I advertise the intake schedule to
prospective students?
What is the best location/s for centralized
intake?
Talk to program director and staff to gain
support and approval.
Yes
Do I need to get approval to initiate a managed
intake process?
What resources and materials will be needed?
Do I want to conduct centralized intake?
How often would intake need to be conducted?
Yes
Who would conduct the intake?
What options do I have for students requiring
immediate enrollment?
No
No
Begin planning process for onsite managed intake.
Who would conduct the intake?
Who would teach the class during onsite intake?
What criteria will I use to determine the
effectiveness of the managed intake process?
When and how often would the intake be scheduled?
