Improving chances of student success
The CRI shows students how they think, act, learn and transition into university, generating outputs thatactively encourages students to adopt behaviours or seek outresources to remediate identified skills gaps.
The Conley Model is based on 42 ‘actionable’ skills and competencies that students and educators can focus on in order to improve readiness for higher education and career success.
These skills and competencies are organised into 4 broad areas called the Four Keys:
- Key Cognitive Strategies
- Key Content Knowledge
- Key Learning Skills & Techniques
- Key Transition Knowledge & Skills
The CRI is built on over a decade of research in the US (and has been piloted in UK universities), analysing the content of undergraduate degree programmes and the opinions of thousands of secondary and post-secondary students and educators about what it takes to succeed in higher education.
Over 100,000 students have used CRI, and their feedback shows that they value the role of CRI in helping them to identify areas beyond basic content knowledge in need of improvement and better understand their readiness to learn and succeed.
