VandalStar Progress Survey Numbers Hold Steady for Spring
March 10, 2020
In mid-February, course instructors reviewed students’ academic performance by submitting Early Warning Grade Progress Surveys in VandalStar. More than 7,700 VandalStar flags and kudos were added to students’ accounts in a 10-day period. Student outreach and follow-up appointments with advisors and academic support staff continue as a result. Of the total 1,019 course sections instructors were asked to assess, the completion rate was 53%. Spring’s submission rate was just slightly higher than last fall’s, which was 52%.
