Why Use OnTrack?
Ongoing faculty feedback on student performance enables us to:
- Quickly identify students who need additional support, as early as possible;
- Communicate timely feedback to students and their Advisors;
- Connect students who are struggling with the resources they need;
- Provide Advisors information necessary to pursue targeted follow-up and interventions with individual students and connect them to support; and
- Close the loop and shared updates on outreach to students, interventions and student progress.
