Midterm feedback is issued in an effort to provide students with early feedback about academic progress, as well as to provide students with services to support them in their success. At the semester midpoint of 16-week courses, Faculty are encouraged to provide feedback to students through a progress survey in Starfish. This is not required. Feedback issued may include a flag (concern), kudo (accolade), and/or comments from the Faculty. Flags raised during a midterm progress survey will result in an outreach to the student from a Blackhawk staff or Faculty member.
