Student course summary

The student course summary shows you detailed information about a student's grades and attendance in the course. It is available to Academic Admins, Registrars, the course faculty and teaching assistants, and the advisors assigned to individual students. You can find it one of two ways:

  • Go to the course Roster and click a student's name.
  • For those with access to the student's advising view, click the course name in the transcript interface.

Navigation and actions

  • The course summary has two views, one focusing on assignments, the other on attendance.
  • Use the drop-down and back/forward buttons to toggle from one student to the next.
  • Click the student's name to go to his profile.
  • The Actions menu lets you email the student or flag him.
  • You can perform a number of actions for incomplete students; follow the link for details.

Assignments

The assignments view...

  • Lets you compare the student's assignment grades to the class' performance as a whole
  • Lets you view and edit the student's individual assignment grades

The grade graph charts the student's percent grades (the blue line) and compares them to the standard deviation calculated from grades from all of the course's students (the gray area). Hover over the blue line to see the student's grade, or over the gray area to see the standard deviation values.

Below the grade graph you'll see a list of the course assignments, what percentage of the final grade each assignment is worth, the actual points the student earned on the assignment, and the percent grade.

  • Click the assignment name to go to its page, where you'll find, among other things, the student's assignment detail.
  • Likewise, you can go to the final grade/attendance page.
  • Click Edit Grades to change any assignment grade or the final grade.

Attendance

The attendance view...

  • Lets you compare the student's attendance stats to those of the class as a whole
  • Lets you view and edit the student's attendance for individual meeting times for which attendance was already taken

Like the grade graph, the attendance graph charts the student's attendance percentage (the blue line) and compares them to the standard deviation calculated from the attendance stats of all of the course's students (the gray area). Hover over the blue line to see the student's attendance figures as of that date, or over the gray area to see the standard deviation values.

Below the graph you'll see a list of the meeting times for which attendance has been taken and a running attendance percentage.

Info

The Info panel gives you the basic roster information for this student—enrollment status, whether the student is getting a Pass/Fail grade, how many credits she'll earn if she passes, and any general notes on the student.

  • Academic Admins and Registrars can edit any of these fields by clicking the field name (save for credits/hours—see below).
  • Hours and credits can be edited depending on what you've permitted in Academics > Settings > General under the Course units by student setting.
  • Course Faculty and Teaching Assistants can change a student's status between enrolled and incomplete.
  • If the Enrollment setting on the Course Info tab is set to allow Faculty to manage enrollment, then course Faculty can change the enrollment statuses to auditor, withdrawn, etc.
  • Advisors cannot change any of this information.

Flags

Flags may have been triggered by flag thresholds or were manually-added here on the student course summary. This interface lets you see current and past flags.

In the above image...

  • The selector is set to show all flags; you can also set this to see only active flags.
  • The red flag was triggered by the flag thresholds established in Advising > Settings. John's performance in ths course is worrisome. If he fixes things up, the red flag can transition to a yellow flag and then even a green flag.
  • The yellow flag from October 2, 2015 was added by the professor, Jamie Zexeckx.
  • The yellow flag from was added by the professor, Jamie Zexeckx. It was marked resolved by John's advisor, the great Southern Catholic novelist Walker Percy, and is considered a part of John's academic history.

Dig that yellow flag from October 2...

  • John's advisor, as well as any Academic Admin or Registrar, can click Mark resolved on any active red or yellow flag.
  • Likewise, they can also edit any active flag. They can change the flag color and the reason given for the flag.
  • If need be, they can click to delete an active flag altogether.
