Early alert is a college-wide effort to promote student learning and success by providing early feedback and support to students regarding their course progress.
Faculty submit alerts for students in their classes who may be in danger of earning a low course grade for attendance, missing work, grades, or other reasons. Students are notified by email of areas needing attention and are encouraged to contact their instructor and advisor for additional assistance and support. Advisors initiate contact with students for whom faculty have requested outreach.
You will receive a confirmation email within 1-2 minutes of your early alert submission. If anything appears in error, you may return to the early alert referral page, make the desired changes, and resubmit the referral. For a sample confirmation email, please refer to step #9 of the "How to Submit an Early Alert" document .
Yes. Students will receive an email notification from you the next morning that contains the contents of your referral and encourages them to contact you and their primary advisor for additional assistance and support. For a sample email, please refer to step #10 of the "How to Submit an Early Alert" document.
Yes. You may delete or revise an alert at any time by returning to the early alert referral page, making the desired changes, and resubmitting the referral. If you wish to erase all current alerts for students in your class, click the reset button followed by submit. Resubmissions made within the same day will discontinue or revise the student email notification.
Advisors will receive a daily email report of students on their caseload who have had alerts submitted within the past 24 hours. They will contact students for whom you requested advising intervention on the early alert submission page.
You may submit additional issues at any time after an initial alert has been submitted by returning to the early alert referral page and clicking on the appropriate boxes. If you want to provide an update to a previous issue that was submitted, add the date and a narrative update to the comment box.
If you de-select any issue that has previously been submitted, it will be completely erased from the information system and there will be no history that the alert was ever submitted. This action is not recommended unless an issue was initially reported in error.
No. This early alert system replaces referral forms previously used by the Findlay-area Student Outreach Specialist and the Toledo-area Success Mentors. It provides a consistent process across all campus locations and is directly linked to the Banner information system.
