Parents frequently wonder if they should be checking their students’ grades. The answer is, ” Yes, you should check grades.” Then the concern is why.
Grades are an indicator of how well your student is doing. Missing or ungraded assignments are as important as the ones that are done. Look for a pattern in the grades. Is it test scores that are an issue? Is the daily work getting done? Are long term projects being handled correctly and getting finished?
It is easier to help a student with study skills for a pattern. If test grades are an issue, then the student needs to be learning information as it is presented and not wait until a test is announced. Doing homework is no guarantee that a student has learned the information.
