If you have forgotten your PIN or password, or have questions about any of your scores, please contact your instructor.

The histogram below shows you where your score falls in the class distribution. The plot displays the cumulative scores of all students who are currently enrolled in Geology of the National Parks. Note that instead of grades the histogram is divided into ranges for satisfactory (S = A, B or C) and unsatisfactory (U = D or F) scores. A U* in the gradebook, which means that a student is earning an unsatisfactory grade because at least one of his or her writing assignments is missing, is not reflected on this graph.
Participation and Success
Woody Allen once said, "Eighty percent of success is showing up." It's not that simple in higher education, of course, but we do expect students who participate regularly to earn higher scores in their classes than those who do not. The plot below shows how student scores are correlated with percentages of assignments submitted (a measure of participation) in Geology of the National Parks. Note that each symbol on this plot may represent more than one student. The red star denotes the class average.
The graph below shows the average scores for all of the assignments given in Geology of the National Parks since 2010. Note that a few assignments are "missing" because the ones used in 2010 were not directly comparable to those used in 2012 and 2014.
