Is the class still improving

27 August 2004

Yes

Because of Rochelle’s bereavement, I had the class mark themselves using a little table I’d prepared. I think the table did two things. Firstly, it helped to structure peoples comments a little, and secondly, because it explicit allowed only four attempts, it caused people to be less forthcoming with ‘off the cuff’ remarks. In other words, people’s comments seemed to be more substantial.

And so the participation played out like this:

| |Week 2|Week 3|Week 4|Week 5|Week 6| |-|—-:|—-:|—-:|—-:|—-:| | 1s| 20| 11| 14| 8| 3| | 2s| 12| 14| 13| 12| 14| | 3s| 2| 6| 3| 10| 9| |Total| 34| 31| 30| 30| 25|

Note how few 1s there were… So the average marks for the class were amongst the highest thus far.

If you want to see the total list for the class, have a look at the extended-entry.

The marks for the whole class.
