FLAG Early Alert System

FLAG Early Alert System

(Fostering Learning, Achievement, and Graduation)

In support of campus efforts to increase student retention and 4-year graduation, all faculty teaching undergraduate students are asked to provide feedback early and often on student attendance/performance in their class. Effective Fall 2011, this feedback from the faculty is being accomplished online using the Student Performance Roster as part of the FLAG Early Alert System. Feedback from the faculty using these rosters allows for quick and intentional intervention with those students who may need assistance. Based on faculty roster feedback, reports will be readily available to advisors and other school officials to take action.

The student performance roster will also be the mechanism for reporting attendance for the Registrar/Financial Aid Compliance enrollment audit.

Course Syllabus/Oncourse Class Announcement
Faculty teaching undergraduate classes are encouraged to provide an explanation on the class syllabus and/or via an Oncourse announcement. A sample notice is provided here:

This semester I will be using IU’s FLAG Early Alert System to provide real-time feedback on your performance in this course. Periodically throughout the semester I will be entering data on factors such as your class attendance, participation, and success with coursework, among other things. This information will provide feedback on how you are faring in the course and offer you suggestions on how you might be able to improve your performance.
You will be able to access this information in the student center: Onestart > Student Services page > Student Center > My Academics and Grades > My Grades.
