Student Grades

More on freshman advising. I was able to see first semester grades for my advisees.

  • mostly B's with a few A's. Hmmmm. I guess I also shared the impression of my advisees that most students got A's in most classes. If my six are representative, that is not a true assumption.
  • one student made the dean's list. I have much greater appreciation for a what a big deal this is now that I have seen every one's grades.

  • a student who nearly withdrew from a class, buckled down and pulled off a good final grade. Impressive. First semester was a shock for all of them. Some were shocked on the first day of classes. It took some of them until the first exam...

  • one student did quite poorly in a key class and yet had been totally confident the entire semester. I'm not sure what to make of that one.
