Faculty communicate with students in a variety of ways. Class Progress Reports (CPRs) are a specific type of email communication that faculty use to give students feedback about their class performance. These communications give an update of class progress and can help you understand what you need to do to stay on track or get back on track.
Receiving a CPR
Reasons you may receive a CPR:
- Absences and/or tardiness (arriving late to class)
- Missing assignments or exams
- Class participation concerns
- Overall class performance
- Referrals to campus resources
Students should check their SAIC email regularly to make sure they receive all communications from their faculty, including CPRs. If you receive a CPR from your faculty, you should connect with them as soon as possible to resolve any issues or concerns outlined in the CPR.
Talk to Your Academic Advisor
Sometimes your advisor may contact you because they are concerned and want to help with the issues listed in the CPR. If you’re not sure how to respond to your instructor or uncertain about next steps, your advisor can talk through the situation with you and help you make a plan.
You are responsible for knowing how you are doing in each class. CPRs are just one possible way faculty may communicate with you about your status in class, and not all faculty use CPRs. Advising encourages you to talk to your faculty so you always know how you’re doing in each of your classes.
