MAP-Works training required for faculty, staff participants

MAP-WorksAs MAP-Works prepares for its sixth year, the Office of Student Academic Success (OSAS) will be hosting several training sessions to provide users with important resources to successfully utilize the program.

This year, all faculty and staff who intend to participate in MAP-Works will be required to attend a training session before being granted access.

Training sessions will be based on the needs and the requests collected from user assessments that were conducted by OSAS in May. Training will cover various topics including FERPA, locating and managing your students, accessing student reports, data mining and more.
