Grade Negotations

Here are some things to think about when you’re coming up with a percentage with which to open negotiations:

  • Did you write a solid inquiry question?
  • Did you post a plan page in January?
  • Did you edit and update that plan as you made changes?
  • Did you put enough effort into connecting with an expert?
  •  Did you blog regularly?
  • Did you reflect on your learning in your blog posts?
  • Did you document your progress and provide evidence that you were working?
  • Did you do a reasonable amount of work for an eight week project?
  • Did you challenge yourself?
  • Did you achieve what you set out to?
  • If you didn’t, are there good reasons for changes to your plan? Did you explain those in your blog as you went?
  • Did your presentation grab and hold the attention of your audience?
  • Did your presentation showcase what you’ve accomplished?
