From Core Instruction: Tired of students asking what their grade is? Help your students be responsible for tracking their own grade.
When I pass back graded work, students take a few minutes to record their grade information (points possible, points earned) for each returned assignment. Then they calculate their running average in the class. Sure, students can look at their grades online at most California schools today, but when students record each score and calculate their current percentage, they get an immediate understanding of how their work and effort affects their grade in class.
This is made available as a modifiable Word document so you can customize it to fit your classes. Copy handout as many times as needed for your quarter, semester, or year.
