A few of my lower achieving students don't pay attention to their grades until it's too late for them to take action. Maybe having the current grade showing in the upper right might help. This includes students who are logged in but haven't clicked on the course -- and so all of their course grades show in the right hand corner. When in a specific course then only the current grade for the course is shown.
I'm curious if anyone has figured out a way to place the current grade of the logged in user in the upper right hand corner as well as a way to show any past due assignments.
Do you think this is a good idea?
Along this line, some of my students miss deadlines and need constant prompting that assignments are past due. Has anyone found a solution?
