In the lab today we graded ourselves for the 30% participation. I gave myself a Distinction because when grading myself in a situation like that, while I might want the HD grade, I can’t bring myself to grade it to myself. So, why did I give myself a D? Well, for the first 8 weeks of semester I was very much on top of things. I attended all the lectures, did all the readings in advance and posted blog entries as often as possible. I deserve an HD for that. But, from week 8 to 12 I petered out. I posted less on the blog, I attended fewer lectures and only caught up on some of them via audio recordings. I spent more time working on the major project than keeping my evidence of participation up. So I figured I should lower my score to a D.
But thinking back on it now, I was on top of things for more than half of the semester. So maybe that does deserve an HD. Too late now I guess.
