Research shows institutions that are most successful with academically at-risk students are proactive in identifying them and active in their intervention. The Early Alert System provides an additional support to faculty in their work with students.
It is important for students to be aware of their progress in classes early in the semester so there is ample time to correct the situation. Therefore, the Early Alert system is available beginning the second through the tenth week of the semester, to allow faculty to identify areas of concern for undergraduate students in their classes. The system is designed to provide faculty with an easy way to partner with other campus professionals to reach out to students when their efforts have failed. Things that may interfere with a student's ability to successfully complete the class include:
Multiple missing course assignments
Poor class performance (exams, assignments, etc.)
Difficulty comprehending course material
Poor class attendance (more than three unexcused absences)
Faculty and instructors who wish to make a report about a student should follow these steps:
1. Log into the online Early Alert system through FlashLine, using your KSU e-mail username and password.
2. Click on Faculty/Advisor Tools tab at the top of the page.
3. In this tab, look in the “Toolbox,” located in the upper-left-hand corner.
4. Click on Early Alert System and follow the instructions that follow.
