Students often visit us with questions such as:
What do I need to get on this assignment to bring my grade up?
Why did my overall grade drop so much?
What would happen if I didn't do this assignment?
I created the GradeSalary.pdf DataDashboard for students to monitor their progress towards their goals and overall grade. Students will see the detrimental effect of missing assignments and poor scores. These Data Dashboards prevent students from working less after their successful assignments because they see potential earnings needed in the future.
Students shade their Assignment Earnings reported to them from teacher grade book reports. Then, students begin shading from the bottom of the Overall Grade Salary Data Dashboard row by row completely. The Overall Grade Salary Data Dashboard teaches students the effects of missing assignments and low scores as they see the potential of earnings available. However, if they lose points on assignments, their Overall Grade Salary growth slows.
Key Questions included help lead students towards ownership of their assignments and encourages them to look for meaningful feedback to improve future earnings.
I hope the words of encouragement at the bottom of the Data Dashboard inspire all of your students towards academic perfection.
If you would like the editable .doc file, let me know.
If the Data Dashboard is too vague or you are unsure how your students could benefit with your gradebook, contact me and we can troubleshoot.
Looking forward to your feedback.
Let us give something to each person we meet: joy, hope, courage, assurance, philosophy, wisdom, a vision of the future. Let us always give something. -Unknown
