In order for Augsburg College to be remain in compliance with state and federal financial aid regulations, faculty must:
- Submit a Non-Attendance/Non-Participation report during the mandatory reporting window for each class indicating students who did not attend or participate in their class at the beginning of the term.
- Report students who stop attending or participating in their class during the term through an Ad Hoc Alert or Mid-Term Progress Report anytime after the mandatory Non-Attendance/Non-Participation reporting period.
This does not mean that instructors are required to take and report attendance during the whole term. We must know which students start and finish. Instructors will need to gauge attendance/participation through the 10th day of the term by one or more of the following means: class attendance, Moodle activity, pre-class survey or online introduction, contact from the student, completed assignments, quizzes or exams. Instructors will need to think about this ahead of time and determine the best method for determining attendance/participation for their class.
- Beginning of Term (student doesn’t start):
- Non-Attendance/Non-Participation is defined as inactivity in the classroom setting in the first 10 days of the term and a failure to communicate with the instructor to explain that period of inactivity. Examples of inactivity may include: no in-person attendance at class, no online participation or Moodle activity, and/or a failure to complete any assignments, exams, etc.
- End of Term (student starts and doesn’t finish):
- Non-Attendance/Non-Participation is defined as a lack of activity in the classroom setting and a failure to communicate with the instructor to explain that period of inactivity. Examples of inactivity may include: no in-person attendance at class, an absence of online participation or Moodle activity, and/or a failure to complete assignments, exams, etc.
