Projected Grades – 6 Weeks to Go

We are now in the final 6-week stretch of the 2017/2018 school year! I have been running various projections for end-of-semester and end-of-year grades.

Projected Year - 6 Weeks - PAE(1)
Projected Year – 6 Weeks – PAE (1st Period)
Projected Year - 6 Weeks - PAE(5)
Projected Year – 6 Weeks – PAE (5th Period)
Projected Year - 6 Weeks - PAE(All)
Projected Year – 6 Weeks – PAE (All Sections)

With a total of 46 students enrolled in PAE, I can handle a failure rate of 4.35%. I not happy with that number as there is no excuse for failure of this class beyond simply not turning in assignments. Hopefully, these failing students will pull-up their grades in the final 6-weeks of instruction and be able to pass for the year.

As you can see, my 4th Period A Day class has all A’s and B’s in the class. They have an overall class average of 93.59. In contrast, my 2nd Period A Day class has an overall class average of 85.15.

There are a total of 28 students currently enrolled in CS1. I am not satisfied with a failure rate of 7.1%. There is absolutely no excuse for this rate beyond students not submitting work. As with PAE, I am hopeful that the students pull their grades up and are able to pass for the year.
