Through the MyNMU.edu portal, faculty members are able to provide academic feedback to selected students, if desired, during a semester. The feedback can include rating attendance, participation, tests/quizzes and homework, and entering an anticipated grade.
There is a field where faculty can also offer suggestions for improvement such as meeting with the instructor, seeking tutoring, doing make-up assignments, better preparing for class and/or improving time management.
This is an important tool for faculty and students, especially students who are struggling in class or are on academic probation, as it gives them a chance to track their progress and seek assistance before they fall behind or it’s too late to make a difference in their grade.
Of course, the academic feedback system is not intended to replace personal communication with students, but it does provide a record of your input and can be viewed by a student’s adviser, allowing him or her an objective overview of a student’s overall performance.
