Class attendance is an early indicator of academic struggles and student attrition. RaptorConnect provides faculty members the ability to easily record attendance, visually see student attendance patterns and report number of missed classes on progress reports. Attendance can be taken in class or recorded at a later time if a professor already has an established method (Sakai, attendance sheet).
An Alert is a formal referral initiated through the Raptor Connect platform that identifies a potential barrier to a student’s success.
At any time during the semester, faculty may Issue an Alert by selecting their concern for a student from a list of reasons. Through predetermined settings, Alerts trigger a case management process by notifying the appropriate staff member, based on their expertise of the student’s issue.
The appropriate staff member reaches out to the student and together, develops a plan of action. Faculty are informed of progress and resolution through the case management process. The case is monitored ensuring every alert receives a timely follow-up. This is called the Coordinated Care Network.

Mid-Term Progress Reporting offers faculty an opportunity to provide students with feedback on their performance mid-way through the semester. Progress reports indicating concern are intended to encourage students to reflect on their academic performance and to take action, in order to improve their academic outcomes.
