ESPR/MSPR

One of the best ways to help students succeed is by providing timely feedback on their academic progress. Timely feedback from faculty members also enhances the efforts of advisors to assist our students with their educational success. This spring semester, we are offering several opportunities for you to provide students with that feedback:

•   Mid-semester progress reports (MSPRs) will now occur through Orange SUccess instead of the separate MySlice application. MSPRs deployed through Orange SUccess will follow the published academic calendar. Faculty are now expected to provide mid-semester feedback for all undergraduate students in their classes. The Orange SUccess system provides immediate email notifications to students instead of requiring the students to log in through MySlice. The MSPR survey will be open Feb. 21 to Feb. 28. Please note that Feb. 28 is a firm deadline as the system does not allow for reopening the survey after the deadline has passed.

•   Early feedback to students allows them to make behavioral changes before they fall too far behind. For this reason, faculty may also choose to complete an optional “ESPR” (early semester progress report) between Feb. 3 and Feb. 10. Upon submission of the survey, the Orange SUccess system provides immediate email notifications to students for alerts raised. Again, the Feb. 10 closing date for this optional early survey is a firm deadline.

•   At any time during the semester, faculty may provide real-time feedback to students by raising early alerts in Orange SUccess. The Orange SUccess system provides immediate email notifications to students for alerts raised. Advisors can review these indicators of attendance and progress during advising meetings.

How do I complete the Mid-Semester Progress Report (MSPR) within Orange SUccess?

Mid-Semester Progress Report – Instructions for Faculty

Currently TA’s do not have the ability to participate. Conversations are underway to expand that access and provide maximum flexibility for faculty to determine if their TA’s should be participate or not. However, for this semester, TA’s should continue to raise manual flags on students.

MSPR report generation instructions: (All flags reported can be reviewed at any time from your Orange SUccess dashboard)

Advisors:   Submit a FAST request for access to the Orange SUccess MSPR folder within MyReports.
Faculty Advisors:  Please send an email to orangesuccess@syr.edu to request reports for your all of your advisees, or provide the individual student name and SUID.
