Mid-semester Grades

You will be receiving your mid-semester grade for ENG 1101 via email in the next few hours. This grade is to let you know how you are doing so far this semester. Please remember that these are NOT final grades, and if you are dissatisfied, there is still time to improve the grade before the end of the semester.

These grades are based on your work in the class so far, including HWs, Preparation & Participation, Essays #1 and #2 (including drafts), and the Midterm Exam. I will be handing back your work in class on Monday (4/16), so you will be able to see exactly what you received on each assignment.

What the different grades mean:

P=Passing [This means that if I had to give you a grade right now, you would definitely pass the class with a grade somewhere between an A and a C]

BL=Borderline [This means that if I had to give you a grade right now, you would be right on the border of passing and failing, a grade somewhere between a D and an F. If you receive this grade, I will list the things that are bringing down your grade. I also recommend that you come see me to talk about how you can improve your performance.]

U=Unsatisfactory [This means that if I had to give you a grade right now, you would fail. If you receive this grade, I will list the things that are bringing down your grade. I also highly recommend that you come see me to talk about how you can improve your performance.]

**If you do not receive an email from me, please email me– it means there is something wrong with the email address I have for you– I am sending out ALL mid-semester grades today (Thursday).

As a reminder, for those students who would like to meet with me, I will have office hours on Monday from 11:30-12:30 in Namm 529, so please come by. If you would like to meet at a different time, you will need to email me to make an appointment.
