Progress Reporting Campaign Dates for Spring 2019
When instructors provide information via Starfish, others can find and help students who are encountering trouble in multiple courses. Course-level information (both positive and negative) is a vital component of larger efforts to support student academic success at Penn State.
Early Indicators progress reporting campaign: Monday, January 21, 8:00 AM – Wednesday, January 30, 11:00 PM.
Mid-semester progress reporting campaign: Monday, February 18, 8:00 AM – Thursday, February 28, 11:00 PM.
When a campaign launches, instructors are sent a link to a “progress survey,” which packages the most relevant feedback items for the time of the semester into a survey format. Instructors who are using the Canvas gradebook may find the Zoom In feature a more convenient way to locate students and send flags and kudos to students in a batch format. Instructors have the ability to raise Starfish flags and kudos at all points of the semester. These campaigns are meant to encourage feedback when it is most relevant to students, and instructors are encouraged to add specific instructions that will help students take the action instructors desire as a result of receiving this feedback.
