Academic Status Report

Thursday, December 6, 2018

We will be continuing to offer faculty the opportunity to enter weekly ASRs for students in spring 2019. A lot of research has been and continues to be conducted regarding ASRs and retention rates. Salesforce Advisor Portal cases for ASRs will also continue in spring, for the select combinations of ASR reasons and recommended actions that indicate intervention leads to better student success. Thank you to both our academic advisors and our online success coaches for the proactive outreach to students regarading these ASRs in fall 2018!

This is the first summer we've opened the Academic Status Report system for faculty teaching summer courses. Faculty are able to submit weekly reports, just as in fall and spring terms. Students are notified on Mondays if they've received an ASR for the previous week. 

Advisor Portal cases are currently only being created for any student in a summer course, receiving an ASR, who is not in good academic standing.

We received a lot of positive feedback from faculty regarding the new ASR weekly reporting option. We have also received more suggestions and continue to work to make improvements. For spring 2018, we will continue the process as we did for fall 2017. Reporting periods will be available to faculty on every Monday, closing that following Sunday at 11:59 pm. 

Proactive advising cases will continue to be created in the SalesForce Advisor Portal.

New for fall 2017, faculty will have the opportunity to submit ASRs weekly. We've enhanced the system to allow weekly reporting both for flexibility to our faculty, but also to provide the opportunity for continued feedback for our students. 

Faculty will be able to submit ASRs beginning on the first day of their class, with each reporting period closing on Sunday. The next reporting period opens on Monday, closing again on Sunday, and so on. Students will still receive the indicator in My ASU within 24 hours of the close of each reporting period/"week". Students who receive multiple ASRs in the same course will see a NEW flag in the pop-up when clicking on the indicator, similar to:

 

Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you for all you do for our students!

 

FAQs

What is an Academic Status Report?

An Academic Status Report (ASR) is a method of providing early, personalized feedback regarding student progress in a class. It is not a part of the official transcript.

How are Academic Status Reports used?

Students are alerted to their progress in a class. The ASR process assists colleges and schools with improving retention rates for undergraduate students by allowing advisors to intervene as early as possible to correct issues a student may have. Some ASRs generate cases in the Advisor or Coach Portal, alerting academic advisors and online success coaches in order to facilitate proactive outreach.

A faculty member missed the ASR deadline. Can you re-open the ASR reporting period?

New for fall 2017, weekly reporting periods have been implemented. Faculty now have flexibilty and the opportunity to submit ASRs on a weekly basis throughout the session of their class. 

A Teaching Assistant cannot access the ASR module for his class, even though he is clearly assigned to the class. Why not?

In order to complete ASRs you must have "post access" for grades in a particular class. Check the Teaching Assistant's PeopleSoft roles. To request post access, contact the department scheduler or roster contact.

Who in my department can help me with ASRs?

Your Roster Contact is a great resource.

Where can I find information on students who have received an ASR?

You can run a variety of reports on ASRs in MyReports. The ASR reports can be found at Student/Student Records/Retention/Academic Status Reports. ASR indicators are also found in the Retention Dashboard. Remember that advisors can see the ASR indicator during the reporting period, before the student sees the icon on MyASU.
