Jen tracks participation using the tangibles collected each class (memos to Jen, notes from small group work, etc.) and her notes (checking to see who has the textbook, for example, or listening during small group discussion).

You can check her account using Engrade.

However, to get a rough estimate, subtract five points for each

Reason for Missed Points Total Number (i.e. 5 absences is 25 missed points total)
Late Arrival
Early Departure
Absence
Distracting Yourself and Others (ex: checking cell phone during small group work)
Day Unprepared (i.e. did not do the reading and could not participate in small group work)

Total Participation Points (write out as a number out of 160—ex. 145/160)

  1. This format seems a great way to keep track of my grade, generally I am terrible at keeping an organized record. Thank you for providing the form and making it a requirement.
