Navigate Alert Reasons and When to Raise Them

As a component of the ISU Navigate platform, academic advisors, faculty, and support resources have the ability to issue alerts on behalf of students. Alerts are created to draw attention to students who may need additional support or as a means to offer praise to their academic performance. 

Alerts can be added through a Progress Reports of an Ad-Hoc Alert. Progress Reports are course based requests sent out to instructors at key times during a semester. Ad-Hoc Alerts can be submitted at any time through the users or student’s profile.
