E Ala Pono – Academic Progress Check
E Ala Pono
Mahalo for your participation in the E Ala Pono Academic Progress Campaign for the spring 2019 semester! Through the E Ala Pono Academic Progress Campaign, faculty are able to partner with our campus resources (Academic Advising, Counseling, and the Noʻeau Center) to support the success of our students.
Faculty will receive two progress surveys: Survey 1 on January 16, 2019 to January 25, 2019 and Survey 2 on February 15, 2019 to March 1, 2019. Through the survey, faculty can identify Early Indicators that a student is at academic risk of or in need of additional support.
In the E Ala Pono cycle faculty observe and interact with students and when behaviors or concerns arise (in the 3rd and 7th week), the faculty may complete the progress survey (MySuccess), which notifies both the student and the service area of concerns. A representative from the service area (Advisor, Tutor or Counselor, etc.) will meet with the student to create a success plan. The faculty will be notified of actions taken.
Pre-E Ala Pono Alert Process
The Pre-E Ala Pono Alert process for faculty involves first informing students about this early alert program, identifying struggling students in need of additional help or support, working with them on the issues they may have in your class and submitting an E Ala Pono progress survey in the event that faculty interventions have been unsuccessful in week 3 and week 7 of the semester.
