I will be taking GAMES spring midterm grade requests to the mailroom Tuesday, March 3. In the past we have requested an estimated alpha grade so that we and the student’s parent could gauge how the student was performing. Many high school counselors are now requesting this information in order to rank their seniors for graduation and honors, including Zell Miller and Hope. Due to this we now ask that you supply an exact numerical mid-term grade so that these calculations at the high school will be correct. Instructions for entering these grades are on the top of the sheets you will be receiving.
For reference, below is an email from Dr. Deepa Arora regarding this issue sent to Deans and Chairs early this year.
As always, thanks for your time.
Dear Deans and Chairs:
Please note the change below highlighting the requirement for numerical instead of alpha mid-term grades for GAMES students. Lisa will inform all the professors one-week ahead of the due date. Thank you all for your support of the GAMES program. Please contact Lisa Whitaker (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions.
