  1. Gonzalo Campos DIntrans says

    About mid term grades…
    I think they are useful, and any information in addition to “U” helps, for example, the student’s current grade or any other observation or measure that the faculty member can provide if they choose to do so.
    What needs to change, in my opinion, is something about the platform itself. There should be a button to check when no students have a U, that would eliminate any doubts about whether the report is being made or not.
