SARA

SARA was created by the Graduate School for tracking satisfactory progress of enrolled graduate students. SARA consists of "live" data pulled directly from ISIS, in addition to tracking data developed by the Graduate School (e.g. requests for grade changes, late enrollment, overloads, and degree completion processing). SARA can provide a list of students by programs, or it can display comprehensive information about one student at a time.

Save
The smartform application allows users to save their work before exiting the application.

Sifting and WinnowingThe phrase "sifting and winnowing" refers to UW-Madison's historic tradition of defense of intellectual and academic freedom. The words are taken from an 1894 report of the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents and were originally used to explain the board's refusal to censure a professor accused of socialist and pro-union activity. The words are mounted on a plaque on the front of Bascom Hall:

WHATEVER MAY BE THE LIMITATIONS WHICH TRAMMEL INQUIRY ELSEWHERE, WE BELIEVE THAT THE GREAT STATE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN SHOULD EVER ENCOURAGE THAT CONTINUAL AND FEARLESS SIFTING AND WINNOWING BY WHICH ALONE THE TRUTH CAN BE FOUND.

SIS

The Student Information System (SIS) is the "behind-the-scenes" software program providing data to assist UW-Madison staffers in their efforts to oversee the continued enhancement of functionality for student administrative services spanning everything from SOAR and admissions through graduation.

SOARThe Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration is designed for all new first-year and transfer students who plan to enter UW-Madison. Invitations to participate in Summer SOAR are mailed in early April to admitted first-year students who have confirmed their intention to enroll by submitting the enrollment deposit. Because the needs of transfer students are often different from those of new first-year students, special orientation programs are designed for that population. In mid-May, transfer students who have been admitted will receive invitations to Transfer SOAR programs. Students planning to enroll for the fall semester attend SOAR sessions during the summer; students who plan to enter in the spring semester attend SOAR during the January SOAR session.  Students and their parents are able to choose from numerous possible two-day summer SOAR sessions scheduled in June and July. SOAR provides an introduction to residence life, academic advising, information on academic and co-curricular opportunities, enrollment for classes, and an orientation to the campus. This orientation continues with the "Wisconsin Welcome" events held when new students arrive on campus at the beginning of the fall semester. Placement tests in English, math, and several foreign languages are also given at SOAR.

STS
The term “STS” refers to short-term instructional staff. STS may refer to several titles, including Associate Lecturer, Lecturer (SA), Faculty Associate, Visiting Faculty, Emeritus Faculty, L/I faculty, and Adjunct Faculty. The L&S Administrative Gateway has documents regarding how to request, recruit and make offers to short-term instructional staff.

Student Assistants

Titles in the Student Assistant title group are used for graduate students who: hold a fellowship, scholarship or traineeship; hold an appointment which is intended primarily to further the education and training of the student; are employed to assist with research training or other academic programs or projects; and/or have been assigned teaching responsibilities in an instructional department under the supervision of a faculty member.

In addition, Student Assistant titles are available to undergraduate students when: no qualified graduate student is available to perform a function that would normally be assigned to graduate students (i.e., Undergraduate Assistant - requires advance approval of the dean); or when the terms of a supporting grant or contract preclude the use of other normally appropriate titles (Undergraduate Intern).

Student Notebooks
Student Notebooks are a part of Office 365's Class Notebook app. They are private notebooks that are shared between each teacher and their individual students. Teachers can access these notebooks at any time, but students cannot see other students’ notebooks.

Study Completed
Once a study team has submitted a study completion report, the study moves from the "Approved" state to the "Study Completed" state. The study remains in this state for a period of 18 months, during which time the study team can reopen the study.  After 18 months, the study is permanently archived.  

Study Suspended
The IRB can suspend a study, automatically moving it to the "suspended" state rather than the "approved" state.  Once a study has been suspended, activities available to the study team are limited.  Study teams can initiate a change of protocol to address whatever caused the study to be suspended in the first place.  

Study Team
The study team consists of the PI, the point of contact, and any other personnel listed as having edit/email or read-only access to study materials in the initial application smartform.  

Sub-Domain

Suspended
This is a state in ARROW.  Studies in this state have been suspended.  Research teams can only submit a change of protocol in this state.  Once the IRB approves the change of protocol addressing the issues which resulted in the suspension, the IRB will then review the full study to determine if the suspension can be lifted and the study can be moved back to the approved state.
