Progress surveys are used by instructors and advisors to identify students who may be in need of additional assistance. We deploy progress surveys through Starfish three times a semester directly to the instructor of record and the instructor of record completes the survey for each section of a course. Any indication of a student needing support is shared with the student and advisor. The advisor then reaches out to the student and offers support. Thank you for supporting students. See the links below for more assistance.
