I knew it; I knew it; I knew it. I think it was Darcy who wrote last Fall, "You said it would happen, jeanne, and sure enough it did." Every semester when I start testing some new template for giving you continuous notice for a transparent, collaborative grading policy, meaning one that you can see what I'm giving grades for, and you can participate in the social construction of your grade, I have to put up my first tentative efforts, to see if they work and share them with you. Invariably, someone doesn't read the file. I get an instantaneous "Wheres' mine?"

I've barely got the template worked out for transferring from transfom_dom to the learning records evidence of your learning. And then establishing a continuing report of a grade. I'm doing it for Independent Study on Religion as Present Social Issue this semester. There are reportedly 50 of you. But I don't get the enrollment records directly. So I'm trying to get all that up now so we'll have no rush at the end of the semester.

Sure enough, in this morning's email, Inez Mayor wrote: "I am enrolled in your 497 class, but I do not see my name on the list. Is there anything I need to do?" YES! Look at what the file says. Look at what Daily Site Additions says. I'm just starting the file, making up a template. And I have no list to go from.

HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP WITH THE LEARNING RECORDS:

Good luck. Hope this helps. jeanne
