Student Progress Reporting
Academic Affairs requires all faculty to report the academic progress of ALL students via WebROCK during the term, including those who are “at-risk” because they are doing poorly, not participating, etc. Your feedback will assist student support teams to better understand how all students are progressing and ample time to follow up with students to help guide them about resources and supports that may improve their academic work before the withdrawal date. This process also helps minimize the academic and financial consequences of an unsuccessful term.
5-Minute Video About How to Complete Student Progress Reporting:
Instructions to report about your students are as follows:
1. Log In
2. Once logged in, click on "Student Progress Reporting" in the list under Faculty Services:
3. Follow the instructions to report on EACH student's standing as described below:
a. Click the link at left that reads “Provide Feedback between…” to open up the roster for the listed course.
b. Complete two key components for each student: Select an Issue (coded 01 thru 04) and enter an Estimated Grade.
i. Selecting an issue is required. Your feedback will not be received unless an issue is selected for each student. Entering an estimated grade alone or with comments will not submit your feedback.
To select an issue for each student, toggle open the list of issues by clicking the arrow to the left of each student. Checkmark the appropriate box (codes 01, 02, 03 or 04). The criteria for the “Issues” listed follow GSC’s grading system.
ii. Estimated Grade: For the grading system, please see the Grading Guidelines document.
iii. Comments are optional unless a student is performing poorly; if that is the case, please take care to describe the situation so that student support services can better assist those students.
c. Click “Submit” for each entry.
4. Notify those students who are At-Risk:
Please makes sure to notify your students who are at risk so there is an opportunity to address the concerns and/or meet with their advisor to determine their best option. An email template sample can be found below your use and/or reference.
The last day for students to withdraw from your class without academic consequences can be found in the Academic Calendar.
