Starfish allows the course instructor to easily inform a student that they may be at-risk in specific areas within the course.

...

Advisors assigned to the student also receive notification of the instructors concern. Instructors and advisors can then take a coordinated approach to help students utilize campus resources and develop an action plan.

The

...

Academic Progress Report allows an instructor to send alerts related to different aspects of academic performance (attendance/participation, low assignments/tests scores, or multiple concerns).

...

Each topic identified as a concern will generate an automated

...

email that goes directly to the student. We ask that you:

  • Check only ONE box for the performance area of greatest concern
    • Indicate in the comment box any specifics about the alert, including your concerns related to the other performance areas.

...

    • (Please note: all comments and messages are stored in Starfish and are disclosable under FERPA.)
    • Selecting more than one box triggers separate emails to the student for each area of concern, resulting in multiple emails.
