Getting Started

RESPOND TO AN EARLY ALERT PROGRESS REPORT REQUEST

Step 1

Click the link in the email that you received from your Pathway Advising Director via gradesfirst.com (you may be asked to login via Single Sign-On)

Step 2

You will be taken to a roster for the class in question. In the second column, mark ‘yes’ for students that you believe are not making sufficient progress in your course.

Step 3

In column 4, you are required to choose one reason for your concern from the ‘alert reasons’ dropdown menu.

Step 4

After selecting alert reasons, you have finished with the required information. However, you can add the student’s current (approximate) grade in column 4, and any other information you would like to share in column 5. This could include information/context about the student, or course resources, or advice

Step 5

When you have completed identifying the at-risk students, scroll to the bottom of the page and select the ‘submit unmarked students as not At-Risk (I’m all done)’ button.

**If you would like to leave the campaign open so that you can evaluate students throughout the term, select the top button- "Submit only marked students (but I'm not done)"**

Once an alert is issued, it will open a case; which sends an email to the student’s assigned advisor, requesting further action. Advisors will reach out to students and offer additional support.

If you would like to receive updates from the advising team regarding the case, please note that in the ‘additional comments’ section.

Step 1

Log into . In the faculty services tab, under ‘Advising’ click on the link to EAB Navigate.

Step 3
