Early Warning System
The Early Warning System is a feature that can be used to email Course Users (Students and/or their Observers) when the criteria for a particular Rule are met. This is a useful evaluation tool so that instructors may create proactive and/or attentive communication concerning a Student’s performance.
To work with the Early Warning System, first make sure you are in the course you would like to work in and that you have the edit mode set to ON.
Rules that can be created in the Early Warning System:
- Grade Rule: an email message is spawned if a Student makes below a certain score on an exam.
- Due Date Rule: an email message is spawned if a Student has not turned in an Assignment by a certain date (Only Assignments, Tests, and Surveys with a due date can be selected for the Due Date Rule).
- Last Access Rule: an email message is spawned if a Course User has not accessed the Course within a time-period to be determined by you.
