The Academic Success Kit (ASK) is an online tool developed for Acadia faculty members to direct students to the scholarly help they need. Using a simple web form embedded in courseware, instructors or professors can quickly and clearly articulate to a student what services are available to them to help improve their papers and assignments. The form lists research and writing elements, such as finding scholarly sources, properly citing materials, improving sentence structure and grammar, etc. that faculty can select while marking an assignment. Upon submission, the populated form is emailed to the student, letting them know precisely what they need to improve upon, and, more importantly, where and how to get help – through the Library or the Writing Centre. This tool seeks to close the gap between a student receiving a marked assignment and then seeking the help they need to improve their work. In this session, Jennifer and Maggie will speak to the development of the ASK tool and review preliminary findings from the pilot launch.
