Student At-Risk Dashboard
The Student At-Risk Dashboard also known simply as At-Risk Dashboard allows instructors and teaching assistants to review all of their students, on a class-by-class basis, and easily identify any student who is at risk. Early identification will allow instructors to contact students at the first sign of decreased activity with the goal of increasing student retention and improving grades. Note: The dashboard may show all or some students flagged during preview week. It is recommended to wait for the course to begin before viewing the dashboard. If you have any questions concerning your dashboard please contact Pearson for assistance.

Emailing from the Dashboard
Important: When emailing students include the icare team (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the cc of the email.
- Select the student(s) you wish to email by placing a check in the box next to their email for multiple recipients or clicking the students email address. In addition, if you are selecting all students you can check the box next to “Check/Uncheck All In Course”. Note: Portions of the emails below have been shaded to protect privacy.
If using the dashboard to send one email to multiple students; student names are in the BCC field so they are not viewable by recipients. Professor name is in the TO: field.
A student’s e-mail address, as stored in the system, is listed so students can be contacted to address at risk behavior. Instructors may send an email to one student by clicking on the student’s email address; or the instructor may send one email to multiple students by selecting the check box next to each student’s name, then clicking on the Email Selected Students link located in the right hand corner of screen.
