Success Navigator Overview
The Student Success Navigator is an online survey that includes items designed to measure student self-perceptions across four domains of behavior, personality, and/or social-emotional status: Academic Skills, Commitment, Self-Management, and Social Support. Each of these four domains is made up of multiple categories of items (with high scores associated with success for each category):
- Academic Skills (tools & strategies to succeed in the classroom)
= Meeting Class Expectations + Organization
- Commitment (active pursuit toward an academic goal)
= Commitment to College Goals + Institutional Commitment
- Self-Management (reactions to academic and other stressors)
= Sensitivity to Stress + Test Anxiety + Academic Self-Efficacy
- Social Support (connecting with people and resources for student success)
= Connectedness + Institutional Support + Barriers to Success
Incoming first-year students are asked to complete the survey during the August orientation. Participation is completely voluntary but reports of student responses can be very helpful to both students and advisors. Students are asked to review their individual reports and to consider reaching out to a variety of campus resources to assist them with the transition to college and with continuing academic success. If you are a student and no longer have the information provided to you to access your Success Navigator report, please contact theOffice of Student Success
