How are you doing in my class?
There are ways to know how you're doing in my class. You could go by the average from our two tests so far: (q means quizz, mt = midterm). If you add "A" for good attendance and non-tardiness and "P" for posts and you have the following:
Cq---Dmt = C- & A+P = C+
Cq---Cmt = C & A+P = B-
Cq---Bmt = C+ or B- & A+P = B
Two B's is a B+
Bq---Amt = B+ & A+P = A-
Aq---Bmt = B+ & same as above
Add to this attendance, tardiness ratio, participation and blog posts. You know how you are attendance-wise because I always bring up the subject (some of you have been dropped and reinstated). I've said that having more than 3 unjustified absences may have an impact on your final grade.
To the oft-asked question "can I get an A in this course?" I always say, "You can."
