Starfish News - The Academic Progress Report will open on Monday, September 16

The first Starfish progress survey of the semester will be opening soon! The Starfish Academic Progress Survey will open next week on Monday, September 16 and run through Monday, September 23. This survey will target special populations and at-risk students. Online classes are not included in this survey. The following flags and kudos will be available to be raised on students:

  • You Rock!
  • Great Participation!
  • Keep Up the Good Work
  • Early Alert: Academic Progress (Email Notification Only)
  • Early Alert: Urgent Academic Concern (Outreach Requested)

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 Academic Progress Survey is used to raise concerns or commendations regarding students' academic performance in class.

Remember that the flag name tells you the intervention you can expect. Email Notification Only flags are an email to the student and documentation in Starfish that is visible to their Success Network. Outreach Requested flags will send an email to the student, and additionally their Success Coach or School Specialist will try to contact the student to help address the concern.

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