Provides information on attendance criteria and how to create an Early Alert and Progress Report.

Progress Reports

What is a Progress Report? 

  • A progress report is a tool used to evaluate student performance in class.
  • It provides information to other staff who can assist the student (tutoring, financial aid, advising, etc).  

When to Create a Progress Report

  • Issue a progress report on a student who is struggling academically.  

Progress Reports will not be available after the withdrawal date.

The Progress Report is emailed to the student. The advisor is notified. You will be able to see any open Progress Reports you have created but not see any comments that are added.

For the first week of the semester, issue an Alert when a student is not participating.  

Behavior and improper conduct incidents should be sent to the BIT team (www.kirtland.edu/bit).  

If you have questions about Progress Reports, contact your dean/director.
