Coming Soon: SCC Early Alert WebAdvisor Form
By Mary Mettler and Sergio Rodriguez
The SCC Early Alert program is designed to be a timely intervention for students who are having academic difficulty each semester. This new WebAdvisor form will give instructional faculty and student services the opportunity to address students’ needs and access support services. The program strives to assist faculty and staff in improving the motivation and performance of underachieving students in an effort to improve SCC’s capacity to retain these students.
How do Faculty benefit?
• Facilitates a communication loop between faculty and students;
• Acknowledges that a referred student has been notified to faculty; and
• Makes students aware of their progress early enough to counteract unsatisfactory progress.
How does Faculty access the Early Alert referral page?
The Early Alert form will be available on WebAdvisor for Faculty in fall 2011.
Training and Flex activities will be provided in preparation.
Early prototype testing will occur in spring/summer of 2011 with select faculty.
How does a student get identified for Early Alert?
A student is identified by faculty if he/she is not doing well in a course.
There are many factors that may contribute to a student failing a course:
- CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR
- CLASS PARTICIPATION
- TIME MANAGEMENT/STUDY SKILLS
- MISSING OR LATE ASSIGNMENTS
- QUALITY OF WORK
- OTHER (custom faculty observation)
The identified students will be sent an email to inform them of the referring faculty’s concerns.
To whom does a student speak if identified for Early Alert?
A student should discuss the Early Alert letter or email with the referring faculty listed on the email.
In addition, the student will be notified about the following SCC student services:
- Math Study Hall (MaSH)
- Tutoring Center
- Writing Center
- Academic Success Center
- Health Center & Psychological Services
- Disabled Students’ Programs and Services
- EOPS / CARE
- Financial Aid
- Child Development Center
- SCC Library
