Illustrative Semester Timeline

The Illustrative Timeline below provides a foundational design from which campus timelines expand upon.  Therefore, all campus users are strongly encouraged to seek out the more detailed, specific timeline for their campus.  
  • Week One

    First Day of Classes:  Student Performance Roster/Student Engagement Roster available.

    • Faculty:  Consider explaining the FLAGS System to your students and tell them how you will be using it. If students are registered for your class and miss the first class, report them as non-attending in FLAGS.  It will allow outreach that can help clarify their situation. 
      • Here's a sample text you could put into your syllabus:  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 as follows:
          • Student Performance Roster:  One.IU> FLAGS Early Alerts tile.
          • Student Engagement Roster:  One.IU>Student Engagement Roster (Student) tile.
    • Faculty at IU Northwest and IU South Bend:  If you are enforcing the course commitment policy and a student has not attended classes the first week, report them as non-attending on your roster before the first week ends.  This will allow the Registrar to administratively withdraw them.
    • Advisors, Student Support/Resource Centers:  Check for feedback on non-attendance and follow up with students as needed.
  • Week Two
    • Faculty:  Continue to monitor non-attendance and if needed, provide feedback about it. 
    • Advisors, Student Support/Resource Centers:  Check for FLAGS feedback relevant to your role and take the necessary outreach to students.
  • Week Three
    • Faculty:  Consider giving students a diagnostic task that will help you identify students who may be struggling.  It does not have to be factored into your grade.  Use it to provide appropriate feedback in FLAGS.  
    • Advisors, Student Support/Resource Centers: Continue checking each week for FLAGS feedback relevant to your role and take the necessary outreach to students.
  • Week Four
    • Faculty:  Follow up with flagged students. See “Closing the Loop.”
