Faculty Progress Reporting

EAB Navigate is part of a university-wide strategic plan to increase academic success and student retention. A great benefit of having EAB Navigate is the ability for faculty to issue early alerts/progress reports. Our early alert progress reporting system is an intentional approach to outreach and support of students who are struggling academically early enough in the semester to help them find the resources they need to be successful at Ball State.

Early alerts are a mechanism for highlighting challenges students are encountering in their classes early enough to connect them with appropriate resources and mitigate poor academic performance prior to the mid-semester point. The alert mobilizes student success staff (i.e., advisors, success coaches, the learning center) to serve as a central point of communication between faculty, the student, and campus resources. Some alerts will go directly to the student and are monitored by the Academic Advising and Student Success teams, and others turn into cases that require a more extended and involved level of outreach. As you know, the summer sessions are compressed. Thus, early alerts will need to happen very soon after the summer sessions begin.

To support faculty in using EAB Navigate, we have developed three types of training: on-demand (video), virtual, and in-person. In order to access the EAB Navigate platform, faculty will be required to complete the training via one of these modalities.
