Blackboard (Faculty) - Retention Center: About the Retention Center
The Retention Center provides you an opportunity to recognize "at-risk" students. The main table displays:
- Missed Deadlines - Alert is based on a defined due date for an assignment, test, or survey. Students who do not complete an assignment, test, or survey by the due date trigger an alert based on the option you choose.
- Grades - Alert is based on a defined score for any grade or calculated column in the Grade Center. Students who score above or below the defined threshold for a specific grade item trigger an alert. For example, the Retention Center can display total grades columns where grades are below 69% to identify students that are at risk of failing.
- Course Activity - Alert is based on students' overall activity within your course. Students who are below a defined level of activity trigger the alert.
- Course Access - Alert is based on the date users last accessed your course. Students who have not logged in for a defined number of days trigger an alert.
The Retention Center allows you to directly email students at risk as well as keep track of students throughout the semester.
