As the third quarter ends, both students and teachers are working diligently to finalize their grades. With all of the last minute tests, quizzes, projects, and essay’s, it is a stressful time for everyone. But, some teachers and students may been ignoring important deadlines that may have made this week a little less stressful.

Throughout the quarter, there are mandatory Edline updates that are meant to show students where their grades stand. Unfortunately, many teachers either are not prepared for the update, or simply ignore them.

Many students, including me, still have no clue what their final grade will be and the third quarter is already over.

Student Sydney Hergan says, “Not having a recent update causes me to not feel confident in how I am doing in my class.”

This added stress to the quarter only makes this time of year harder.

For students, the week after the end of the quarter is especially stressful when we have last minute tests and quizzes. Some teachers make the last grade for the quarter a test that could drastically affect your final grade. On top of making corrections to newly updated grades, students must be prepared for new assignments and tests.

Not knowing your final grade and having last minute assignments majorly stresses students. Having a last minute update only a few days before grades are final does not give students or teachers much time to make corrections to any wrong grades or do any late assignment to fix their grade. If we had frequent updates from all of our teachers, our stress at the end of the quarter would be lowered for everyone.
