Faculty-student interaction is key to undergraduate success.
The Academic Progress Report system in ConnectCarolina (formerly called the Academic Early Warning System) gives instructors the opportunity to identify and provide comments to students performing well and to students exhibiting early signs of academic distress. Academic Progress Reports are intended to encourage students to reflect on their academic performance and take action in a timely manner.
For the Spring 2013 semester, all course instructors of undergraduate courses may submit an academic progress report comment by logging on to ConnectCarolina from January 28 to February 25 well in advance of the drop deadline for the semester on Tuesday, March 5, 2013.
Instructors can submit up to 2 of the following progress report comments for each student enrolled in their course:
When you submit an academic progress report for a student, the student will be contacted by email and through ConnectCarolina. A note will also be placed in the students advising record. Students who receive academic progress reports are encouraged to consider:
1. Visiting their instructor during faculty office hours or make an appointment with their instructor to discuss their progress in the course and, if necessary, strategies for improvement.
2. Meeting with an academic advisor to discuss their strategies for success in the course and, if necessary, dropping the course.
3. Utilizing university resources for academic success.
Academic advisors are notified of students’ progress reports in the Advisor Notes system. Undergraduate Retention staff, in the Office of Undergraduate Education, compile reports of the students who have received progress reports and outreach to student groups.
We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to provide students with early feedback on their academic progress in your course. This is especially important for students early in their undergraduate career. Progress report comments will not appear on official transcripts.
