EAB Progress Reports

We had great success last spring with the prototype launch of Early Intervention Progress Reports. We are now ready to fully launch this for Fall 2020. This initiative is part of a university wide strategic plan to increase student retention and academic success. Currently, faculty have the capability to submit early alerts through the EAB Navigate system. However, the Progress Reporting system will be more intentional and provide outreach and support of undergraduate students who are struggling academically early enough in the semester to help them find the resources they need to be successful at ASU.

To access to EAB Navigate, visit https://asurams.campus.eab.com, and use your ASU username and password.

If you are teaching freshmen or students who are on probation, please review the following information and adhere to the dates for training.

To begin we will engage in two types of Early Intervention Progress Reports: Early Alert  (Week 4; August 31) and Post Mid-term Alert (Week 12; October 26).

An email will be sent to instructional faculty for the Early Alert Progress Report during Week 4 with a link containing a class roster. The link will only be sent to faculty who teach freshmen and students on probation. During Week 4 of the term, faculty are asked to simply select “Yes” for each student that is at-risk to fail their course. It is also necessary to select the appropriate reason(s) that the student is at-risk (i.e. Low Grades; Has not purchased textbook; Missed Exams/Quizzes/Papers; Needs Tutoring, etc). At this point in the term, it is only necessary to identify those who are having challenges with the course. Once the challenges are identified, the appropriate area will receive notification and make contact with the student. For example, if the student is at-risk because they “Need Tutoring”, notifications will be forwarded to the Academic Success Center. In turn, the center staff will make provisions for the student to receive tutoring, participate in study table, etc.  Follow-through by the appropriate staff will occur to ensure the student has attended tutoring sessions.

The Post Mid-Term Report will be requested during week 12 of the course. An email will be sent to faculty asking them to continue to identify students who are at-risk and select “No” for each student who is not at risk. This is important as it provides verification that the student is not having academic issues as of the end of the Intervention Period.

Frequently Asked Questions

Research and best practice shows that Week’s 2-6 of each term are the best time to effectively intervene. Intervention can still be effective later in the term but in many cases, the student is too far behind to catch up.
It is always a good idea to have some early assessment, even if such assessment is not part of the students’ grade. If this is not possible, please pay attention to other warning signs such as poor attendance or missing assignments.
It is ok to provide partial feedback early in the term. In fact, we prefer that during the first 8 weeks you only identify students as At- Risk.  Please wait until week 9 to mark students as Not At- Risk.

It is important that you report issues as quickly as possible after they arise. If a student does not attend class in the first week, please be sure to respond to the initial Early Intervention Academic Alert Progress Report request with a Poor Attendance alert as soon as you can. It is a good idea to submit new alerts each week for any student who has had an issue arise within the last week. The quicker you identify and report an issue, the quicker we can begin working to contact the student and address the problem.

It is only necessary to issue one alert for each individual issue. For instance, if a student is only attending class sporadically during the first few weeks, it is only necessary to issue one alert once you have identified the attendance problem. There is no need to submit additional alerts each time the student misses class. However, if another issue develops, such as a poor test score, then it is necessary to issue an alert for Low Test Scores even if you have already submitted an alert for Poor Attendance.

You can login to Navigate and issue an individual or ad hoc progress report at any time during the semester.

Yes! While Faculty is encouraged to provide timely feedback to their students and offer any help they can, it is also very important to report the issue through Early Intervention. We find that many students will respond to an academic advisor even if they are not responding to their Faculty(s).

No! While mid-term grades do show a student’s performance prior to the end of the semester, at times this is too late for a student to academically recover. The goal of Early Intervention is to get the student back on track before mid-term. However, if the student is still failing at mid-term, the failing mid-term grade is an important notice to the student and advisor they may need to consider next steps for success in the course.
