Developing an Early-Alert System to Promote Student Visits to Tutor Center
Cai, Qijie; Lewis, Carrie L.; Higdon, Jude
Learning Assistance Review, v20 n1 p61-72 Spr 2015
An early-alert system (MavCLASS) was developed and piloted in a large gateway math class with 611 freshman students to identify academically at-risk students and provide alert messages. It was found that there was significant association between the alert messages students received and their visits to the university's tutor center. Further, the achievement of students who visited the tutor center was improving over the semester. Evidence from the study suggests that an early-alert system focused on personalized feedback from instructional staff correlates with the help-seeking behaviors of at-risk students in large gateway classes.
