The Early Alert Program was instituted during the autumn 2007 semester as part of the University's Student Success Initiative. The program is designed to identify students who might be having academic difficulty and to direct them to assistance. An integral part of this process is the early grading procedure using the mid-term grading function in CyberBear. First, instructors teaching courses numbered 200 level and below will identify students who are performing poorly in a class ("D" work or less). Then these students will be connected to advisors to provide academic assistance and direction.
Important points regarding the initiative:
The Early Alert/Mid-term grade function will be available to you beginning in October. If you have any questions about the process or have difficulty accessing your grade rosters, please contact the Registrar's Office.
The instructions for processing Early Alert/Mid-term grades follow. Thank you for your efforts in helping to assure that our students succeed.
EARLY ALERT GRADING INSTRUCTIONS
Early Alert grading is much like mid-term grading, except a grade of deficient (DEF) or remedial deficient (RDEF) is submitted ONLY for those students performing "D" work or below as of the end of the 4th or 5th week of the term. Grades are submitted electronically in CyberBear using the following process:
