All the Student Examples Possible!

As you look through the examples, keep this information in mind:

  • Grades for these examples range. FERPA regulations prevent me from telling you specific grades.
  • Taking risks works into the grade, so you cannot see everything that went into the grades.
  • Be respectful as you discuss the work of other students.
  • Please do not leave comments/questions on any of these student sites.
  • The situation matters for how many projects were created, so ask me if you want more info.
