All points are now up on BeachBoard. The total points possible so far is 88. Here’s what you should have to be on pace for each grade level:

79 – “A” pace
70 – “B” pace
61 – “C” pace
52 – “D” pace
51 & below – “F” pace

79 points is what you should have so far to be on track for an “A” in the class. Currently 94 peeps have 79 or more points! 😀

57 points and below is the end of the grading scale we don’t like to be on. Unfortunately, ATM 11 people do have 51 or fewer points. At this early time in the semester, it’s super easy to turn that around. But every week it gets a bit harder. After a while you can really be underwater. If you’re not on pace for the grade you want, why not turn that around today!? If you just need to get going – get going! If you need help or have questions – ask me after class today! I hope nobody needs to drop, but if anyone does, it’s a lot easier in the early part of the semester, so if that happens to be your situation, do it this week!

Lots of you got full credit on everything. Some of you got more than full credit. And some got less. Ways some got less than full credit:

  1. Not posting activities.
  2. Too short, not analytic posts
  3. Poor post names
