2) What has gotten you to the grade that you have now? Is it the homework? The time spent in class?
3) Are all your assessments complete? Meaning have you taken them all? Or do you have a redo or missing?
4) What are you going to do to either maintain the grade you have or improve your grade before the semester ends?
