I personally love checking my grades on StudentVUE, but it stresses me out too much. It pushes me to keep up my good grades until the point that I almost go insane. I mean, if you have bad grades, this is the perfect app for you. You can check what you need to work on and get better. But if you have straight A’s, it is really stressful to keep it up because you have your grades in front of you all the time. If you have this, you check all the time and are trying to keep up and for me, it drives me insane. I think we should switch to weekly progress reports, so we can check weekly on our grades and not be on iPads all the time.
Now, I do not think devices are evil or brain destroying alien devices. It’s just that kids these days are on devices 24/7. The school says to put our phones away. Then they want us to use our iPads. Spoiler Alert: They are still devices!
StudentVUE is not helping kids improve their grades. It keep students up at night worrying and this might frop their grades.A weekly progress report might help all relieve our stress around grades.
