Student Scores


Student Scores

If you are enrolled in Astronomy during the current term you can view a list of your scores on all of the assignments to date using the grade server program. Just type in your PIN and password below and then press the "Find my grades" button. If you have forgotten your PIN or password, or have questions about any of your scores, please contact your instructor.

Also, note that grades from previous semesters are not available here. If you are a current student they can be obtained by viewing or printing your unofficial transcript from the Navigator page. Otherwise, official transcripts can be obtained from the registrar's office.

Score Distribution

The histogram below displays the cumulative scores of all students who are currently enrolled in Astronomy. Note that instead of grades the histogram is divided into ranges for satisfactory (S = A, B or C) and unsatisfactory (U = D or F) scores. A U* in the grade table, which means that a student with an otherwise satisfactory score is earning a U because at least one of his or her writing assignments is missing, is not reflected on this graph.

Score Distribution

Participation and Success

Woody Allen once said, "Eighty percent of success is showing up." You have to do a lot more than just show up to succeed in college, of course, and we expect students who regularly participate in their classes to earn higher scores than those who do not. The plots below show how student scores are correlated with percentages of attendance and assignments submitted (two proxies for student participation) in Astronomy. Note that in these plots each symbol may denote more than one student and that the red stars denote the class averages.
