Starfish is a web-based suite of software that provides three main types of services: Early Alert and Progress Reporting Connection features including appointment scheduling, success networks and kiosks Reminder features for students around to-do's appointments and services How will we be using Starfish to assist students? Starfish will be used to help students directly, by providing easy and centralized access to services, faculty, staff and information about their performance. It also indirectly helps students by assisting faculty and staff in managing information about students in a centralized way and providing easy to use tools to flag students. Goal is to use Starfish in a pro-active way to provide outreach to prevent concerns as well as address them. Provides an alternate way of communicating requirements through success plans, to-do’s and referrals. Academic Success and Achievement areas will use Starfish to direct interventions and manage action plans with students.
