Starfish Announcement: The Midterm Progress Report opens Monday!

Thank you to all faculty who participated in the first Starfish progress survey of the semester in September! Faculty raised over 1700 kudos and 500 flags for over 1300 students as a result of this survey! The comments on these alerts help inform students on their progress as well as the School Specialists and Success Coaches who work with them and respond to their flags.

The next Starfish survey, the Midterm Progress Report, opens on Monday, October 12 and runs through Monday, October 19. This survey will again target students in special populations and include the following kudos, flags and referrals:

  • You Rock!
  • Great Participation!
  • Keep Up the Good Work
  • Early Alert: Academic Progress (Email Notification Only)
  • Early Alert: Urgent Academic Concern (Outreach Requested)
  • Technology Concerns: Limited Access or Proficiency
  • Research Assistance: Librarian Referral

Please note: there are no attendance flags with this survey. Attendance-related alerts and outreach to students are now triggered through faculty daily attendance reporting in Starfish. The Midterm Progress Survey is used to raise concerns or commendations regarding students' academic performance in class.

Please direct any questions about the use of Starfish to John Kulak, Early Intervention Specialist, at Thank you for your participation in Starfish surveys!

Kulak, John
