Project: Early Alert System for SIS

Primary UITS contact: Sandy Thompson

Last update: September 13, 2013

Description: The project is being initiated to facilitate student retention and success. There are multiple components of this project:

  • Within the core SIS: A student performance roster where faculty track/evaluate individual student progress in a class, a student view of the performance roster, and enhancements to student planner and advisor functionality
  • Within the SIS J2EE environment: A new Advising Records (AdRex) front end and Advisor Appointment Scheduling system, both of which will integrate with core SIS functionality, as well as a student survey tool

Significant decision support work will be done in conjunction with the overall project, but it should be tracked separately.

Milestones and status:

  • SIS Student performance roster Completed April 26, 2012
  • SIS enhancements to student planner and advisor functionality:
    • Basic Planner enhancements: Moved into production December 3, 2011
    • My Advisee enhancements: Moved into production January 19, 2012
    • Integrated Planner enhancement: Moved into production June 21, 2012 (a couple of missed requirements will be delivered in August 2012)
  • AdRex (Advising Records front end):
    • Phase 1: Moved to production June 8, 2013
    • Phase 2: Retire Advising Contacts System from PeopleSoft - moved into production September 12, 2013
    • Phase 3: Retire Starnet Advising System - projected production date December 2013
    • Phase 4: Retire Kelley School of Business Advising System - projected production date May/June 2014
  • Advisor Appointment Scheduling:
    • Production date for advisors July 15, 2013
