Student Performance Rosters
FLAGS System (Fostering Learning, Achievement, and Graduation Success)
IU’s Early Student Performance Alert
In support of campus efforts to increase student retention and 4-year
graduation, all faculty teaching undergraduate students are asked to provide
feedback early and often on student attendance/performance in their class.
This feedback from the faculty is being accomplished online
using the Student Performance Roster as part of the FLAGS System. Feedback from
the faculty using these rosters allows for quick and intentional intervention
with those students who may need assistance. Based on faculty roster feedback,
reports will be readily available to advisors and other school officials to take
The student performance roster will also be the mechanism for providing reporting attendance for the Financial Aid compliance, as well as enrollment information to the Registrar.
Course Syllabus/Oncourse Class Announcement
Faculty are encouraged to provide an explanation on the class syllabus and/or via an Oncourse announcement. A sample notice is provided here:
This semester I will be using IU’s FLAGS System to provide real-time
feedback on your performance in this course. Periodically throughout the
semester I will be entering data on factors such as your class attendance,
participation, and success with coursework, among other things. This information
will provide feedback on how you are faring in the course and offer you
suggestions on how you might be able to improve your performance.
You will be able to access this information in the student center: Onestart > Student Services page > Student Center > My Academics and Grades > My Grades.

FLAGS INFORMATION FOR ADVISORS & STUDENTS

Future phases of the FLAGS System include plans for a student survey and more inclusive student data from other University records in an effort to provide a truly complete picture of student expectations and any indicators of potential risk. The intent of the FLAGS System is for specific school officials to have valuable, timely data in hand so intervention may take place assisting our students toward the ultimate goal --- their graduation and continued future learning and success.
