Navigating the Student Success Collaborative
Welcome to the November issue of Connected newsletter from the Division of Student Academic Success. We are proud to highlight the Fall 2019 Progress Report campaign in this issue.
Academic Progress Reporting closed on October 25, 2019. More than 600 faculty members issued progress reports to more than 6,100 students during the Fall 2019 Progress Report campaign. Participation in this effort encourages communication among faculty, students, advisors, and student success staff and is critical to our academic mission.
Faculty members issued progress report concerns for the following reasons (with the action taken for each reason in parenthesis):
- Poor Attendance (email sent to student)
- Missing Assignments/Homework (email sent to student)
- Poor Quiz/Test Grades (email sent to student)
- Writing Skills Concern (email sent to student)
- Cannot Pass With Remaining Coursework (case opened and email sent to student)
- Never Attended/Stopped Attending (case opened and email sent to student)
- Clinical Concern – Nursing (Case Opened and email sent to student)
- Nursing Graduate Student Concern – (case opened and email sent to student)
Students can access the details of their progress report(s) on RaptorConnect’s Reports tab. Only the concerns listed above automate an email containing the instructor's feedback. CLICK HERE to read the specific email content for each concern reason.
Faculty members can track cases related to concerns directly on their Professor Home page in RaptorConnect and are able to view the status of those cases.

Progress Reporting and Case Management
This semester, concerns such as Cannot Pass with Remaining Coursework, Never Attended/Stopped Attending, or Clinical Concern (Nursing) automatically opened a case in RaptorConnect, alerting the student's assigned advisor(s). Support teams are encouraged to work collaboratively (i.e., Academic Advisors, success coaches, counselors, Dean of Students Office staff) to determine the best approach to helping students in this situation. RaptorConnect has several “case closed” options that allow advisors to manage cases and easily communicate with faculty.
This year, to help better track students and support our collaborative efforts, full-time students receiving three or more progress reports were sent an email to connect to campus resources. If the student received a fourth progress report, an additional alert (“5 – Student received 4 or more progress reports this semester”) opened a case for their academic advisor(s). Finally, the Dean of Students joined cases if that student received five or more progress reports.
Progress Report Case Summary
Cannot Pass with Remaining Coursework: 73 Opened Cases
Never Attended/Stopped Attending: 175 Cases Opened
Clinical Concern (Nursing): 21 Cases Opened
Four or More Progress Report Concerns: 17 Cases Opened
To view your assigned cases, click on the FILE FOLDER ICON located on the red sidebar in RaptorConnect. Use 'Manage Case' to view the details of the case, enter comments and to close the case. Remember, students DO NOT see case details, please reach out to the student regarding their professor's concern via email, text or phone.

Updates to Tags and Alerts
This semester, the CCAS Graduation Planning Team surveyed students with 90+ earned credits to identify the term when they expect to complete their degree requirements. The team tagged students with this information. This tag may be used by any advisor to easily track students' expected graduation term.
This new tag identifies students with staff access to RaptorConnect. Access for student workers must be requested using this link: Request User Permission. At the end of the semester, supervisors must review their list of student employees to make determinations for continued access.
