Progress Reporting - FAQ

What is a Mid-Term Progress Report?

A Mid-Term Progress Report is direct feedback provided to a student regarding his/her/their progress in a given course. Mid-Term Progress Reports can include positive or constructive feedback. If a student receives a progress report indicating concern, they should take action as soon as possible to improve their overall academic outcome.

Why are Academic Progress Reports important?

  • Early feedback allows students to reflect and take effective action to succeed in your class.
  • Your comments help academic advisors and student support professionals develop a picture of each student’s overall performance in a given semester and know when to reach out to struggling students (e.g. when a student has concerns noted across several courses). Your comments also help reinforce positive feedback when meeting with students.
  • It’s often difficult to interact personally with all students. Progress reports help bridge that gap by providing individual feedback on student performance beyond grades.

Must faculty submit feedback for every student?

At a minimum, faculty are requested to submit feedback for students whom they have concern regarding their academic performance.

Marking only students with concern and selecting the submission option of SUBMT UNMARKED STUDENTS AS NOT AT-RISK (I’M ALL DONE), will automatically mark all other students as having NO CONCERN. This option reduces the time to complete progress reports particularly for courses with large rosters.

Instructors are encouraged to utilize the FEEDBACK REGARDING PERFORMANCE section to elaborate on concerns, or to provide positive feedback for students who are doing exceptionally well.

How do faculty enter Academic Progress Reports for students?

Instructors receive an email containing a unique link to the instructor’s progress report roster. Feedback should be entered directly on the progress report form.

Instructors may also log in to RaptorConnect and access the Progress Report campaign link in the bright yellow message bar located at the top of their Professor Home page.

How do students receive faculty feedback submitted through progress reporting?

Students who receive a progress report indicating concern, get an email as soon as the progress report is submitted.  Click here for the automated email message sent to students for each concern.

Students can access the details of their progress reports, including the comments submitted, by logging into RaptorConnect.

Who can see a student's Academic Progress Reports?

Mid-term Progress Reports can be seen by the issuing instructor, the department chair, the student’s assigned advisors, staff within the Division of Student Academic Success and the athletic director/coach if the student is an athlete.
