Academic Progress Reporting is a critical tool in our effort to reach students who are in academic difficulty at an early enough point in the semester to provide positive intervention. Your participation in this effort encourages communication among faculty, student, academic advisor, and the Office of Academic Services by electronically distributing progress reports which you submit.
You will receive Progress Reports to complete for a pre-selected student population, to report their current status in class regardless of academic concerns. This group may include:
- Students who are currently on academic probation;
- Athletes for NCAA compliance;*
- Students who are tracked for retention purposes.*
In addition, we strongly encourage Progress Reports initiated by instructors for the following:
- Any student who is at risk for failing your course.
Because early intervention with students in academic difficulty is our best method of providing assistance to students, we will remind you twice through the semester that Progress Reports are due. Your participation in the Progress Report System is critical to our academic mission. It is important that students receive any Progress Report information prior to the last date of withdrawal (See Critical Advising Dates).
Bentley faculty and students have been pleased with the results of the program over the past several years. If you have any questions regarding the progress reporting system, please contact Assistant Dean Leslie Doolittle, Director of Academic Support Services, via e-mail or by phone at 781.891.2903.
