Starfish Progress Surveys

 

Progress Surveys allow faculty members to raise concerns (flags) or send compliments (kudos) related to a student's academic performance at specific points during the semester. Each raised flag or kudo sends a standardized email, including any notes entered, directly to the student on behalf of the faculty member. The message is shared with the student’s academic advisor, keeping advisors better informed about student performance and possible needs. 

During Fall 2020, we will be deploying two Progress Surveys to allow faculty to provide feedback on course performance to students.

  • No feedback? - When filling out a Progress Survey, you don't have to select a flag or kudo for every student in your course. If you leave all the check boxes blank for a student, no feedback is assumed and no notifications will be sent. To indicate no feedback for an entire course, simply open the progress survey and click the submit button.
