A recent peer-reviewed study from the University of Arkansas and the Denton (TX) Independent School District found that using Naviance was a strong predictor of students applying to college by making college and career information available, helping students create individualized learning plans, and establishing a college-going culture.
The study examined five dependent variables that were likely to be good predictors of college application rates: gender, socioeconomic status, GPA, number of years of using Naviance, and the average annual logins to Naviance. Findings indicated that the average number of times a student logged into Naviance accounted for the largest variance in the college application rates.
