Academic Support Pro-Tip

Use midterm feedback as a space for growth! The most important information you get is not numerical, but the effort grade and the comments you’ve received (both on midterms and assessments so far).

  • Think about your strengths and weaknesses. What can you commit to continuing to do? What area do you want to focus on for improvement?
  • Reflect on what your teachers have noticed in the way you show up to classes. Are there patterns you see on certain days? Are classes earlier in the day different for you than classes later in the day?
  • Check in with your teachers. If you’ve received comments, show that you’ve thought about the feedback you’ve received. If you haven’t received comments, ask pointed questions about how you’re doing in the class and what your teacher has noticed about your performance. Be active in your learning!
