How is persistence lift calculated?

For each letter grade, we look at historical persistence rates for students that get each grade. The lift is the average change in persistence between each letter grade. In other words, we look at the boosts to persistence if students were to move from an F to a D, D to a C, C to a B and B to an A and average those deltas to calculate the persistence lift.

The sum of the differences between each grade is then divided by the total number of students who persisted in that course (i.e., students who would have persisted with a higher letter grade/actual number of students who persisted).
