Starfish is a software tool that enhances advising relationships and student success at Elizabethtown College. Faculty and staff can easily view students’ progress toward academic goals, identify road blocks to success and intervene when students are struggling. Students receive real time feedback, encouragement and acknowledgement through flags and kudos and can easily connect to faculty, advisors, and staff through a network of information and services.
Instructors who have concerns about a student's class performance can:
- "Raise A Flag" and activate the students "success network", or
- "Raise A Kudo" and give positive feedback on a student's efforts or academic success.
By viewing a student's "success network" advisors, faculty, and staff can view and contact important key influences to a student's success.
