Her grading scale could be an angel or the devil.
Ms. Hagan's class can be difficult at first, but you will eventually get used to it. To get good grades, redo every paper you get a Not Yet on until you get an A or B. Make sure you know all the material really well, or else you will get left behind.
If you have a not yet, come make it up. You're dumb if you don't because you could literally have a 100% in this class all year just by making up work.
The grading scale may seem like it sucks, but she will help you by letting you redo your work. It actually helps you learn the material better.
I complained a lot about the A, B, and Not Yet grading system, but now I realize that I wouldn't have learned anything, and I would have had a good grade on the end.
This class is challenging, but you have to push through the difficulty. Take full advantage of Ms. Hagan's grading system. It will help you out in the end.
Some people hate the grading scale Miss Hagan uses, but if you show effort to get your grade up, it is really easy. But, if you don't have the time to come in and make up homework and retake tests, then you can just bring her a cat or something to do with cats, and that might help you get on her good side at least.
All I can say is you will hate the grading system. Everyone does. The people that say they like it are lying. Trust me.
With Ms. Hagan's grading system, it is easy to fail this class. However, if you keep track of all of your assignments, you will have an extremely high A. Trust me. You will get Not Yets. Don't stress about it. All you have to do is take another one. With my personal experiences, my grade varies from a 93% to a 62%. That is what not-yets do.
You cannot fail her class unless you just don't try to pass.
If the grading system is still in place, don't accept zeroes or any other grade besides a one hundred. Otherwise, it is likely your grade will drop.
You can learn a lot in this class, so pay attention. A lot of us complain about her and her grading system, but she really is a great teacher.
Attend the parent teacher conference for her class because that's likely your only chance for extra credit because she doesn't believe in extra credit.
Another good word of advice is to not be afraid of asking for help. Asking for help is something vital for making a good grade in this class. Not asking for help allows your not yets to pile up fast.
Tests are usually harder than the examples she gives you. But, you should be able to retake the test or fix your problems on papers if Ms. Hagan keeps her grading style.
The tricks Ms. Hagan uses really help. She makes things seem easy. Your grade should stay up if you really care and pay attention.
Ms. Hagan's grading system is really good. It gives you a great chance to make really good grades in her class.
Ms. Hagan is always willing to help you with your grade if you're willing to. She will let you come in at anytime to make up your work or to help you with it.
Just be sure to work hard. No one likes getting NOT YETS, and I mean no one likes them.
You probably get the grading scale "A, B, Not Yet." It's annoying, but it actually helps you out with this class.
Show all your work, or you'll get a Not Yet. :(
