*You can send an early alert at ANY point in the term by using the "Raise Flag" function.


The progress survey allows an instructor to send alerts related to 4 different aspects of academic performance (attendance, participation, assignments, and tests). Each topic identified as a concern will generate an automated email, signed by the instructor, 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 3 performance areas. 
    • Selecting more than one box triggers separate emails to the student for each area of concern, resulting in multiple emails. 
  • Any time an instructor raises a flag (via progress survey or "Raise Flag") and includes a comment, the comment is embedded in the standardized email and goes directly to the student.  Please direct all comments directly to the student.
  • All comments and messages are stored in the early alert system and are disclosable under FERPA.
  • In-person training is highly recommended for instructors to understand the system's additional functionality & communications related to alerts.  In the meantime, a user can get a good overview of the system by reviewing the information listed under each of the menu items included here.
