Progress Reports

Course Progress Reports allow instructors to easily communicate quick feedback - especially areas of concern - to students enrolled in a given course. The tool is designed to support students who are having academic challenges with the goal of helping you stay on top of your coursework. By submitting a progress report, instructors can provide you with feedback and connect you to campus resources.
