Students have started expecting good grades for mediocre work, knowing that the professors are under an obligation to give in to the way the rest of college professors grade. Harvey Mansfield, says that according to the american education system, grading strictly is ‘cruel and dehumanizing’ and affects the student's self esteem. The author says how he thinks that a reason professors have opted into a lenient grading scale is to spare their students self esteems and feelings. I wonder, if students don’t learn how to cope with a critique from a professor on an assignment how are these students going to cope in the real world with criticism from coworkers or authority figures. Not only do these students suffer from self esteem issues they are not being challenged enough and suffer from laziness and lack an incentive to achieve
When I enrolled in college, my student advisor went over my degree plan, and made recommendations on what courses I would need in the pursuit of my degree. Thinking to myself, that I had not been in a school environment since 1991, I had my fears and didn’t know how I would conform inside a classroom with younger students who was straight out of high school or no more than five years removed. The student advisor recommended that I begin my degree with WRTG 101, and that I take this course online. Online courses appeared to be the path to take, because you can learn at your own pace without holding other students up and looking dumb while doing it. Taking WRTG 101 in an online format proved not to be the best solution, because I have always been a face to face, teacher present type of learner, and I am not a computer savvy individual. I began WRTG 101 this semester with minimal writing skills, and after numerous writing assignments and exercises I believe that I am now on my way to
In Kurt Wiesenfeld’s article “Making the Grade”, he address the issue that students want a higher grade than they deserve. He goes on to prove this be by giving examples of previous students that he has had and what can happen when students get the grades that they want and not what they deserve. In Wiesenfeld’s article he states that about ten percent of students that take his class do not care about their grades until final grades are over. “You might groan and moan, but you accepted it as the outcome of your efforts or lack thereof,” Wiesenfeld stated.
In previous years, I have never had to work hard for a good grade. Now I have to put in extra time every night to go over vocab and stories or else I would get a bad grade. This class has taught me how to work harder and how to study better and that’s not even the writing aspect of it yet. My writing has gotten better because of
Throughout the entire course I stressed myself to get my assignments done as quickly as possible. I had the mindset that I would not accept anything lower than a letter grade of C because that is just how I was raised. As a result, I just caused myself to become even more stressed by doing something I was not even capable of because I already had 5 classes I was taking and a full-time job. I realized that in order to succeed I had to be aware and acknowledge my own potential. I learned that in some situations it is just best to settle for what is good for one’s self and that it is okay to not meet other people’s
I have completed my Unit 6: Assignment 1 (Decision Making that Moves the Organization) and tried to submit it to the Smarthinking tool. Unfortunately, I received an error message stating that I do not have any more minutes and it needs to be reset. I am going to call the Advisor tomorrow regarding this matter. In any case, if it does not work, I will submit it without the Smarthinking tool. I 'll let you know. Have a good

Word Identification The QRI-4 guideline suggested Tessa begin reading the word lists at the upper middle grade level, two levels below her current grade level. However, it was necessary to test back to the fifth grade level due to Tessa’s performance on the suggested starting point. Tessa completed the fifth grade word list automatically with 90% accuracy, in the allotted time, signifying she read the words at the independent level. When analyzing the sixth grade word list, Tessa automatically identified 70% of the words, indicating she was identifying words at the instructional level.

Chuck, We need the data sheets for the following machines: KCC10 S/D KCC15 S/D KCC20 S/D KBB100 S/D KBB200 S/D KBB400 S/D For the KSH series we need the presentation, brochure, data sheets, and videos.

3. Offer bouquets first, before brick-bats There are positive aspects in everything, if only we care to look for them, notice them, appreciate them. So, next time, before you start firing away at your kids for a lack-lustre academic report, do look out for subjects, even minor ones like PE, Music, Art or Health Education, which he has done well in. Compliment him on these first, before "blasting" at him for almost failing a couple of his core subjects. A word of caution here: It is clearly not good policy to "blast out" at a kid for poor performance.
