Student Success Portal Spring 2 Early Term Progress Survey launches March 29

The Spring 2, 2019, Early Term Progress Survey launches Friday, March 29, and is open for 10 days, closing Monday, April 8, at 11 p.m. CDT. This survey is distributed to all Spring 2 U.S. on-ground and online courses. 

Faculty members are expected to complete their survey(s) during the 10-day window – even if they have no feedback to submit – because students are responding to the flags and kudos raised.

One student responded to feedback from a professor saying, “Thank you so much for your encouraging thoughts. I appreciate all of your feedback!”

Additionally, data shows that raising concerns (flags) and providing positive feedback (kudos) early is helpful for students and leads to more opportunities to achieve success. One faculty member stated, “It’s virtually impossible for a student to fall through the cracks if faculty get familiar with this portal.”

Another faculty member said, “The Student Success Portal is already proving to be a boost in early detection of academic issues. Faculty are working even more from a shared-responsibility mindset, with successful active interventions. We are finding that students respond well to faculty follow-ups.”

Of the past seven Early Term Progress Surveys, the highest completion rate was 42 percent. Webster’s goal for the Spring 2, 2019, Early Term Progress Survey is a completion rate greater than 50 percent.
