midfieldr: Data, methods, & metrics for studying student persistence

This talk introduces R users to data and tools for investigating undergraduate persistence metrics using the midfieldr and midfielddata packages. The data are the student records (registrar's data) of approximately 98,000 undergraduates at US institutions from 1987 to 2016. The goal of the talk is to introduce the packages and to share our data, methods, and metrics for intersectional research in student persistence.
