Keeping Students Aware of Current Grade Status in an Online Course

Keeping students aware of how well they are succeeding in an ongoing class is always a challenge.  We all receive numerous messages containing variations on “How am I doing?”.  While it’s not unreasonable to expect the students to figure this out on their own from points received and possible, this reasonable expectation is not always met {understatement alert!}.  Hank Beaver has devised an effective and efficient strategy for providing students with this information on a weekly basis using his Blackboard .  He’s been generous enough to make and share a screencast that shows how he’s doing this.  The hope here is that being made aware of a steadily worsening grade status in a course will dissuade students from ignoring such an inconvenient truth and spur them to corrective action while there’s still time for such action to succeed.
