I was looking for something to use with my high school students to have them take a detailed look at their quarter grades, analyze where they are, and how to move forward. Most of what I found online was geared to elementary or more of a homework log type of thing. So I created this "Grade Self-Analysis" sheet and I love it!
I pass this 1 page sheet out to the kids (usually on colored paper) after the end of 1st quarter (and then again after 3rd). It is a homework assignment, but with some of my lower classes I'll take them into the computer lab and make sure they all complete it. They need to fill out the sheet while looking at their class grade online. They identify their letter grade, the percentage, their missing work, their low scores, etc. Then they make a plan to improve it--what assignments need to be turned in, what tests can and need to be re-taken, etc. Finally, they set end of term goals.
A lot of the kids never take the time to really look at their grade in my class, so this activity is forcing them to do that and has been very helpful. Many kids discover that one big assignment is killing their grade or that they need to re-take something or even that I, the teacher, made an error.
It's also great because after completing this the students have no excuse--they know exactly where they stand and what to do about it. I use it at the quarter but it could be easily completed weekly or monthly.
