Keeping an eye on your own progress can tell you much more than any report made by a teacher. This will help you see where you are having difficulty so that you can deal with it before it gets worse!
Try grading yourself (A, B, C, or whatever) on one or more of the following:
- The grade or marks I obtained
- My level of effort
- The growth of my knowledge
- My level of understanding
Keep a record of your own grading. It will help you plan your progress and allow you to set targets.
Where do you succeed?
Where do you fail?
What are you going to do about it?
You could also plot your marks on a graph with marks on the vertical axis and school week (1 to 40 or so) on the horizontal axis. You will then see immediately if you are heading up, down or staying the same.
NEVER REGARD “FAILURE” AS FINAL
Turn it into a challenge and use every opportunity to put it right! Only small changes in effort or attitude are required to move between grades – preferably upward!!
