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 explored how Naviance influences college application rates by pursuing two research questions:
Research Question 1: Does the length of time students have access to Naviance predict their college application rate?
Research Question 2: Does the number of times students access Naviance predict their college application rate?
Findings indicated that average number of times a student logged into Naviance accounted for the largest variance in the college application rates.
