Guidelines for Self Assessment

You may not have received a great deal of feedback in your classes up to this point - that’s not uncommon in college.  Use the following guidelines to review your progress before asking your instructor for his or her feedback on the “Student Feedback Request” form.

1.      Examine your course syllabi to identify factors your instructors will take into consideration when grading.  Note what percentage (or how many points) of your final grade will be weighted on each of these stated factors.  Record any classes of concern below:
