Hi Daniel,
	The signaling (flagging) device we use is made of 1-1/2" PVC pipe.  The pipe is 3-3/4" long so that two widths of green and red duct tape will cover the outside of the pipe.  We add 1" X 2-1/2" stickers with the following printed on them.  For the green side, we type a sticker that says "OK"  and a sticker that says "If you are okay working on your own for now, turn "OK" side up."  For the red side, we type a sticker that says "HELP" and a sticker that says "If you need assistance from a tutor, turn "HELP" side up."  By flipping the pipe, the student can indicate OK or needs HELP.  We first started using toilet paper rolls but found that the PVC pipe is, of course, more durable.  Hopefully, the photos will show you what the pipe looks like.  This has worked for us.

Subject: Tutor "Flagging System" Ideas

Hello All,

We are in the process of switching the focus of how students receive tutoring services through our success center.  We are wanting to discourage a culture of students from being codependent on our tutors by utilizing some sort of flagging system to alert the tutors to students when they are requiring assistance with a concept.  We would be tremendously grateful to hear what other centers have found to work well with their students and any tips on implementing this new system.

Thank you,
