Student Scores

If you are enrolled in Historical Geology during the current term you can view a list of your scores on all of the assignments to date using the grade server program. Just type in your PIN and password below and then press the "Find my grades" button. If you have forgotten your PIN or password, or have questions about any of your scores, please contact your instructor.

Also, note that grades from previous semesters are not available here. If you are a current student they can be obtained by viewing or printing your unofficial transcript from the Navigator page. Otherwise, official transcripts can be obtained from the registrar's office.

Score Distribution

The histogram below shows where your score falls in the class distribution. The plot displays the cumulative scores of all students who are currently enrolled in Historical Geology. 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 college, of course, but we do expect students who participate regularly to earn higher scores in their classes than those who do not. The plots below show how students' scores are correlated with their attendances and the percentages of assignments they have submitted (two proxies for participation) in Historical Geology. Note that in these plots each symbol may denote more than one student and the red star marks the class average.
