Determining when to graduate, fail, or cancel a student's class...

Hypothetical: (and if you're one of my students, no, I'm not referring to you, I promise!)

Let's say you have a student who has done 2 or more reviews. They are not already advanced. Either way, you can graduate them at this point. Let's say that if on their 3rd, 4th, etc. review, they get a product and they don't review it. And you don't hear from them for a WHILE. No signs of life, and they still have a product they received from EF but no review to show.

You can graduate them. Unless you're not allowed to graduate a student with due assignments, then let me know. However, they don't really deserve the graduation. Granted, if they come back, they can easily vote in. But you did work hard with the student. Do you graduate them (because you deserve the reward for working with them) or is it wrong because they didn't really embody the program completely.

Do your refuse to pass them (the student didn't pass button)? Do you hold out for them even longer since they're so close with being done anyway? How long do you wait?

I don't know, it's something I'm thinking about. Give me your opinions

If you feel they are worthy of the graduation, you can graduate them, but I'd likely fail them after one month. After so long you have to assume they aren't coming back. If they do come back, they might cancel class on you anyhow, so I say do what you think is best. If they don't have their upgrade and do come back, they will likely go up for the vote on upgrading, anyhow. So, you can't go wrong either way. And you still are rewarded the same fail or graduate.

Cool, I somehow neglected to realize that.

Thanks, Beck!
