Navigate: PRO@UWL Early Alerts

How to leave alerts for your students as part of the PRO@UWL early alert process.

During the fifth week of each semester, UWL sends out an email to instructors requesting feedback on their students during the semester. The aim of PRO@UWL is to identify students that are in need of additional support and connect them with resources to help them be successful.

Not all courses will be included in PRO@UWL each semester. Instructors whose courses are not included in PRO or those who want to enter an alert for their students outside of the PRO@UWL campaign, can always enter an adhoc alert (Navigate: Issuing an adhoc alert) at any point in the semester.

1) On the first day of the PRO@UWL campaign, you will receive an email to your UWL email address. In this message, look for the link "Click to begin entering student feedback."


2) The link will bring you to a page with your course roster. Here you will be able to enter any alerts for your students.


3) As you go through your list, identify ONLY the students that you have concern for. Under "Concern regarding student's academic progress?" select the YES radio button. Skip past any students that you do not have concerns about for now.Then, select from the alert reasons from the drop down menu.  You may choose more than one.

Alert reasons include:

  • At risk of D/F (if current trajectory is unaltered)
  • Direct to tutoring
  • Lack of course engagement (absences, missing coursework)
  • Nonacademic concern: Include relevant information in comment
  • Other: please provide relevant information in comment


4) Entering a comment with more information about the reason for the alert will be helpful for the student and will allow the staff following up with alerts to more efficiently assist the student.


Students have direct access to view all alerts and comments issued as part of PRO@UWL. Please provide comments related to your observations about the student's performance in their classes; personal details including health information, should not be included. Please see examples below.

Here are appropriate comment examples

Sadie is very depressed and is not completing her work to the degree necessary for this course.
John has missed several classes and an exam this semester.
Jon is not prioritizing his classwork this semester and has missed several classes and an exam.

5) After you have entered alerts for all students that you have concerns about in your course, scroll to the bottom of the class list. 

This button will submit students you have entered feedback for as being complete (removing them from your feedback roster). However, the students you have not given feedback for will remain on your list.

You can then re-use the link in the progress report email at any time to continue leaving feedback for the rest of the students in your classes.

If you have finished leaving student feedback, use this button to automatically report the remaining students on your list as not-at-risk. This will complete your progress report.

Students will automatically receive an email for academically related alerts, helping them to identify support resources and get the assistance they need. Additionally, the Navigate team will work to monitor alerts and connect students to support services as well. Navigate: PRO@UWL Early Alerts

You can view student alerts under the History tab on a student's profile page (Navigate: Student Profile)
