Here are a few guidelines that describe when a faculty member may choose to clear a flag.
It’s important to clear flags, so students know an issue has been resolved. It also helps the outreach team members know when an issue has been resolved.
The “Never Attended” Flag
Clear the flag if the student drops the course OR if the student starts attending the class.
Clear the flag if the student’s behavior changes and he/she starts coming to class on time.
Poor Attendance Flag
Clear the flag if the student starts attending on a regular basis and his/her attendance is no longer an issue.
Missed/Late Assignments Flag
Clear the flag if you allowed the student to make up the assignment and he/she turned it into you.
Other or Disengaged Behavior Flags
Clear the flag if the student’s behavior improved after you raised the flag.
