Over the spring semester we had the opportunity to speak with a lot of our users and were inspired to make to make some updates before the fall semester.  We’ve done a lot of work.  See the highlights below and then go to our support site to read all of the details.

 

Graduate Student Inventory

              Over the Spring semester we’ve been doing research and working with member institutions to great a brand-new assessment to help you better understand your graduate students.  Over the fall semester all institutions using our Beacon product will be able to pilot this new assessment for free.  Check out the details here.  Share this email with others at your institution that may be interested in administering this new assessment.

 

Absence thresholds

              Administrators in Beacon can now set the maximum unexcused absence threshold.  This update removes the need to have Faculty log in and set this value.

 

You can now filter the success stream

              The success stream contains a lot of important information and it is important to be able to organize that information.  There are many of combinations to filter by log in today and give it a try!

 

Are you sending us Grades and Absences from your LMS?

              We’ve updated the technology that we offer for institutions to create automated notations in Beacon.  Do you use our APIs to get or send us data in Beacon?  If you don’t you should!  Contact your consultant to learn how this tool can help your student success efforts.

 

We have a few other updates we’d love to share with you!  Visit our announcements area to learn more.
