At every session, you are required to complete a sign-in sheet for your students to fill out. You can use the stock sign-in sheet created by the program, or simply a blank piece of paper. Please make sure you are recording the following:
Session information: Date, SIL Name, Subject/Course, Location of Session
Your students will fill out their full name, signature and last four digits of their 900 number.
You can print out/use a new sign-in sheet for every session, or simply draw a line and add a new date. If you do not have students at a particular session, you do not need to fill one out.

At the Bi-Weekly SI Program Meetings, you will turn in your Sing-In Sheets to the AOLs
After census (roughly 3 weeks into semester) you will be sent an excel sheet with your class roster. Each week you will take the information from the individual session sign-in sheets and complete the weeks attendance.
- Via "Save As" save the document with the following format: last name-week #.
- Under each session add the date the session was held, and add the attendance for individuals below.
- No matter how long a student attends a session, you will record 1 for that day.
- Your professor may require you to turn in SI attendance for credit in the class. It will be your responsibility to record that on your own. You do not turn in your sign in sheets to professors.
Attendance Sheets should be submitted via Blackboard by 11:59pm on Friday (or as soon as possible). Having problems with Blackboard (because Blackboard can be rude) email attendance sheets to Dr. Mark and Dr. Nagasa.
Timesheets (i.e. how you get paid)
Throughout the 2 weeks of a pay period please enter in the hours you work and add comments explaining what you did during that time.
- Follow HR’s procedure to get into your online timesheet.
- In the comment section, you are required to fill out the comment section with the days you worked and what you did those days.
- For example, if you went to class and held a session on August 15, 2016, you would write 08/15 – Class and Session.
- Here is a list of tasks:
- C = Class – where you attend your SI Class
- S = Session – where you attend your SI session
- E = Email – where you corresponded with SI faculty, your professor, or your students
- M = Meeting – where you attended monthly or team meeting
Reminders will be sent to your email.
- An explanation/reminder of why the hours were submitted late.
- The date/time(s) for all hours worked
SI staff will add the past hours to the next available payroll. PLEASE do not add old hours on your timesheet.
Absence from meeting, session, or class.
If you are unable to attend due to an emergency,
- If you are missing class/session:
- Email your students that you will be absent. You should schedule a make-up session as a courtesy to your students.
- Email your professor so that they are aware and can update any students that have not checked their email.
- Email your coach and Dr. Nagasa.
- If you are missing a team meeting or monthly meeting
You are not required by SI to attend class when there is an exam. Please verify with your professor at the beginning of the semester that additional lecture material will not be covered on exam days. You are not expected to hold a session immediately after an exam when there is no new course material to go over.
Room Request for SI Session
The standard location for SI session is 2nd floor SSB, and reservations are not needed. If you are planning to hold a SI session outside the SSB, here are things you need to know.
- Room reservations for the Science building (Math and Chemistry) need to go through the STEM Coordinator, Kelley Zolnikov, and Cc Dr. Mark/Dr. Nagasa.
- Room availability is first prioritized for academic classes. It may be difficult to find a location during the first few weeks while classes may still be in the confirmation process.
- Please be flexible. If you do not get the room which works best for you (and your students) keep an open mind. You can always use the SSB rooms at any time, or reserve a library study room.
- Click here to learn more about reserving a library Group Study Room!
- When you have decided your SI session times and desired location outside of SSB, you will email Dr. Nagasa/Dr. Mark and your coach.
Regardless of location - email coach and Dr. Nagasa/Dr. Mark with your regular meeting times and session times.
The SI program uses session and observations to provide developmental and constructive feedback to all SILs. SI professional Staff and Observation Support Leaders (OSLs) will carry out observations throughout the semester. Observations are not intended to be punitive, and all SILs should be expected to be observed multiple times throughout the semester. Newly hired SILs will be observed more frequently, especially during the initial 6 weeks of the semester.
The goal of observation process is to improve the performance of SILs and as a result help foster a richer learning environment for the supported students.
