  • Issuing Progress Reports - Individual Student

    To issue a Progress Report, go to the Class Listing table located on your Professor Homepage. You will see one row for each class you are teaching in the current semester.

You can include how many absences the student has in your class and the student's current grade. Finally, in the Comments box, you can enter any supporting comments regarding the student's performance in your class. Please keep in mind that students will be able to read your comments, so it is recommended that the comments be directed to the student and that they do not contain sensitive information.

  • Issuing Progress Reports - Multiple Students

    To issue a Progress Report, go to the Class Listing table located on your Professor Homepage. You will see one row for each class you are teaching in the current semester. To submit Progress Reports for a specific class, find the row for the class section that you need, then click on the Progress Reports link in the last column of the row. You will be redirected to the Progress Reports page for the class you selected.

    On the Progress Reports page, you will see a class roster at the bottom of the page.

If you selected Yes, the students are at risk to fail your class, then you can also select one or more Alert Reasons explaining why these students are at risk to fail. The Alert Reasons should apply to all the students you are making Progress Reports for because each student will receive an individual report with the Alert Reasons you select in this step. It is recommended that you do not enter absences or current grade when creating Progress Reports for multiple students because this information is not likely to be the same for all students. Finally, in the Comments box, you can enter any supporting comments regarding the students' performance in your class. These comments should be general enough to apply to all the students you selected for Progress Reports. Please keep in mind that students will be able to read your comments, so it is recommended that the comments also be directed to the student and that they do not contain sensitive information. To complete the Progress Report, click the Submit Report button. You will receive an additional pop-up asking you to confirm that you want to submit a Progress Report for multiple students, click the OK button.

In the Open Cases table, click on the Manage Case button of any case to see the activity for that case. A new window will open on your screen with the Case information for the student that you selected. In the new window, you will see your initial comments and any additional comments created by the student's advisor.
