Student Success Portal Summer Early Term Progress Survey launches June 12

The Summer 2020 Early Term Progress Survey launches Friday, June 12, and is open for 10 days, closing Monday, June 22, at 11 p.m. CDT. This survey is distributed to all graduate and undergraduate Summer term courses throughout the United States and at the Leiden campus as well as to undergraduate courses at the Tashkent, Uzbekistan, campus. 

We ask all faculty members to submit 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. Completed surveys allow the students’ success teams to assess students’ progress and reach out as needed. Especially as we navigate the issues brought about by COVID-19 and remote instruction, reporting student challenges and connecting students to relevant supports early is key to their success.

Additionally, data shows that raising concerns (flags) and providing positive feedback (kudos) early is helpful for students and leads to more opportunities for students to achieve success.

Questions? Reach out to the Starfish Implementation Team at and/or access the resources available at, including a detailed Progress Survey FAQ section and a brief video on how to complete a Progress Survey.
