What are progress reports?

Progress reports allow instructors to provide students with feedback that will contribute to their overall success as a college student. These progress reports are designed to:

  • provide feedback about academic progress concerns
  • increase communication between students and their instructors
  • remind students of UWL resources for student success.
  • Not all instructors may provide feedback via progress reports, use is highly encouraged, but is voluntary. Students are encouraged to speak to their instructors if they have questions about their progress in a course.

What does this mean for me as a student.

During the semester, students will receive an email notifying them that a progress report has been created by one of their instructors.

You can view feedback received in Navigate Student by following these steps:

Select the My Docs Icon in Navigate.
