The Instructor Guide to MySuccess (.pdf) provides an overview of MySuccess Early Warning and Connect Appointment Scheduler. MySuccess Early Warning is a communication tool for instructors to identify students who experience academic difficulty that puts them at risk for not completing their education at KU. Instructors may identify students who demonstrate outstanding performance, who have significantly improved their performance or who might not have otherwise received feedback. You may access MySuccess by logging into Blackboard and selecting MySuccess from the Tools module on the left. Or, you may login to the myKU portal and choose MySuccess from the Academics tab.
MySuccess allows instructors to segment or filter students based on their performance in class. Faculty may “raise a flag” to prompt a communication to the student or a group of students. The instructor may personalize the message to each student by including specific examples of areas of improvement or suggested resources that may benefit the student. Instructors may find it helpful when raising flags to refer students to tutoring services or supplemental instruction for their course.
Ideal faculty usage of MySuccess includes the following: a statement regarding the usage of MySuccess in the course syllabus, utilization of the Blackboard gradebook, allocated time and resources to flag and kudos management, assistance in intervention follow-up by serving as the first referral advisors will make to students regarding the context of a flag or kudos and completion of the program survey at the end of each term.
