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

Check out the histogram below to learn where your score falls in the class distribution. The plot displays the cumulative scores of all students in Geology of California who have turned in at least one of the most recent week's assignments. 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 gradebook, which means that a student is earning an unsatisfactory grade because at least one of his or her writing assignments is missing, is not reflected on this graph.

Participation and Success

Woody Allen once said, "Eighty percent of success is showing up." It's not that simple in college, of course, but we do expect students who participate regularly to earn higher scores in their classes than those who do not. The plot below shows how student scores are correlated with percentages of assignments submitted (a measure of participation) in Geology of California. Note that on this plot each symbol may represent more than one student.
