Benefits of ECC Connect

Usage of ECC Connect has been shown to close equity gaps and increase retention for various disproportionately-impacted groups at our college as the graphic below shows. 

Overall, the fall-to-spring retention among students who received one or more tracking items (kudos, flags, or referrals) in ECC Connect was 87%; in contrast, among students who received no tracking items in ECC Connect it was 67%.  Among African-Americans, Hispanic, and Hawaiian/Pacific-Islander students, this difference can also be seen.

Fall 2021 Progress Report Dates:

  • 16-Week Courses: September 20 - October 3 and October 25-31

 

Instructors now have the option to go paperless and submit the grade checks online through this system. The purpose of grade checks is to support our student special programs with a midterm check in.

We want to empower students to make informed decisions about their education and to be able to assist them when they are not progressing academically in their course(s). The programs that participate will follow up with students and keep their instructors in the loop about the student's progress. Instructors will be able to complete these on the following dates:   

Fall 2021 16-Week Courses: October 4 - November 5

Individual tracking items of current projected grades can still be raised.

Grades can be found under the following tabs:

  • Kudos: Passing (Grade A) or Passing (Grade B)
  • Flag: Passing (Grade C)
  • Referral: In danger of not passing (Grade D) or Not Passing (Grade F)
