Student Performance Rosters - FLAGS
Fostering Learning, Achievement, and Graduation Success

IU’s Early Student Performance Alert

In support of campus efforts to increase student retention and 4-year graduation, all faculty teaching undergraduate students are asked to provide feedback early and often on student attendance/performance in their class. Feedback from the faculty is accomplished online using the Student Performance Roster as part of the FLAGS System. Feedback from the faculty using these rosters allows for quick and intentional intervention with those students who may need assistance. Based on faculty roster feedback, reports will be readily available to advisors and other school officials to take action.

The student performance roster will also be the mechanism for providing reporting attendance for the Financial Aid compliance, as well as enrollment information to the Registrar.

Course Syllabus/Oncourse Class Announcement
Faculty are encouraged to provide an explanation on the class syllabus and/or via an Oncourse announcement. A sample notice is provided here:

This semester I will be using IU’s FLAGS System to provide real-time feedback on your performance in this course. Periodically throughout the semester I will be entering data on factors such as your class attendance, participation, and success with coursework, among other things. This information will provide feedback on how you are faring in the course and offer you suggestions on how you might be able to improve your performance.

You will be able to access this information in the One.IU Student Center > My Academics and Grades > My Grades.

Future phases of the FLAGS System include plans for a student survey and more inclusive student data from other University records in an effort to provide a truly complete picture of student expectations and any indicators of potential risk. The intent of the FLAGS System is for specific school officials to have valuable, timely data in hand so intervention may take place assisting our students toward the ultimate goal --- their graduation and continued future learning and success.
