So you just had a very long (weirdly longer than any other university) spring break. Now you have been back at Wesleyan for one week. You might have had your midterms, are preparing for upcoming midterms, or are one of the few students that don’t have much work. Currently, you might be dismayed with your midterm grades or worried about how your upcoming exam may affect your overall class grade. So what should you do to see your class progress and performance right now?
- Check your grades
On Moodle, certain professors post your grades on the left hand side of that specific class’s Moodle. There you can see your previous grades and upcoming assignments. Additionally, you can observe what percentage of your entire class grade each assignment may be. This is a great place to check your progress! If your professor does not post your grades on Moodle, you should look at your syllabus for your professor’s grading methods and apply this criterion to your previous assignments.
- Go to Office Hours
All professors are mandated to have office hours. Here, you can ask your professor questions about readings, question her grading methods, or talk about your professor’s research. Furthermore, office hours are a great way to ask about your grade or your progress in the class. Your professor’s office hours should be posted on the syllabus and class Moodle!
- Make a Plan
If you do not like your grades in a class and think you have to catch up on some work, you should map out a plan. Use your agenda, computer, and Google calendar to create a schedule for your work and class assignments. This is a great way to get on track for the second half of the semester. Peer Advisors are a great source to help make a plan and you can email all of us at “email@example.com”
We hope this a helpful way to get back on track or improve your second half of the semester and always feel free to contact any peer advisor at the email above. Good luck!
