Student+ Profiler is a state of the art online screening system that aims to help universities maximize every student’s talents.

Profiler provides comprehensive screening tools and personalised self-managed resources for the student and information for the university to aid retention.

It includes tools to identify:

  • Neurodiversity traits such as for Dyslexia, ADHD, ASC, Dyspraxia/DCD, Dyscalculia and social and communication challenges.
  • Study Skills gaps.
  • Personalised strategies for  improved wellbeing university and at home.

Student+ Profiler has been developed over the past ten years by internationally-renowned experts.

Why use it?

As a university you want to know which students need help and support early on in their journey.

Student+ Profiler provides a cost and time effective solution allowing students to be provided with support early on in the year with self-managed guidance and allows staff an instant view of students strengths and potential areas of challenge.

Tools in the past have looked at Dyslexia or Dyspraxia(DCD) in isolation despite neurodiversity being specific to that individual. Study skills are often not considered alongside this despite some students with learning challenges requiring some specific support.

Student+ Profiler takes a biopsychosocial approach providing person-centred guidance to every student in your university from Day , while providing this information for staff to.

Who can this be used with?

Student+ Profiler is specifically designed for university settings.

How will it help the students and your university?

Challenges for most universities is to deliver a cost and time effective system that allows students to gain appropriate support. Ideally this is delivered before there are ‘real difficulties’ and students are at risk of ‘dropping out’.

Not all students come with a ‘label’. Some students may be re-entering education after a long break; others may have had challenges since school days and know they need help and want this straight away. Some may have not had the means to access an assessment prior to university.

Student+ Profiler offers an equitable approach to pinpoint early who needs support and provides guidance and resources in response to the student’s profile.

In many universities, it is being deployed across the campus as part of the induction process. Students can have the support needed at the beginning of their course to aid retention.

What is in the reports?

The Student+ Profiler reports are personalised, depending on the responses given by the student and come in two formats- one for the tutor and one for the student. They contain relevant links to resources, including external websites, as well as support for the organisation. Click here to view a sample report.

Is it accessible?

The system is accessible with reports and guidance delivered in a range of formats to suit different learners.

How do we get started?

You can purchase a site license for Student+ Profiler:

  • An annual site license is a cost-effective way of screening all students entering your university, and can easily be used to screen up to 10,000 people at one time. Alternatively, you can buy blocks of licenses.
  • Your site will have your logo and you can tailor the report to send students to the services you provide.
  • All data is stored on the Cloud.
  • Students can access the site from home or from the university.
  • Videos and a comprehensive manual assist you with support and a telephone help line is available for any queries.

Alternatively, you can buy blocks of licenses if you wish to use Profiler with fewer than 200 students in a year. Contact us to discuss your needs.

Can this be used by all students?

Student+ Profiler is a modular system. It is being used by universities to deliver a tiered approach.

The approach is usually offered at 3 levels using Profiler:

  • For all -most students screen for neurodiversity traits and study skills. Optional wellbeing and employability tools can be used if wanted.
  • For some use the screening tools for further assessments of dyslexia/dyspraxia related skills
  • For a few- use the specialist tools with support from student support services.

There are also additional modules to track performance and emotional wellbeing.

How long does it take to complete?

This is dependent on the number of modules. The standard pack takes about 30-40 minutes to complete but the student does not have to do it all in one go.

Who else uses it?

Student+ Profiler has been used by some universities for more than 3 years and now has the predictive tools to target specifically who may be at risk of drop out, by course .

What computers do we need, or can students use their own laptop or tablet?

The system works through the computer’s or tablet’s browser, and should work on Windows, Apple and Android devices. We do not advise accessing it on a mobile phone.
