@Sugaree:  I try to check them 1-2 times a semester. Once near the end to make sure I’m not failing/nothing is missing, and then sometimes when it’s all over to see what the final grades were.

I’m weird though. I figure, it is what it is, it’ll just depress me if it’s not good, and if it is good, that’s exciting, but it’s not worth the risk to me. We have automated grading as soon as you leave the testing center, but I never look and I’ve actually found it to be very freeing (though my sister thinks I’m crazy and sometimes checks my grades for me :P).

This close to the end of the semester?  It takes some willpower not to do it every hour on the hour if I’m waiting on a grade.  I can’t stand the suspense. 

During the rest of the semester, only if I’m really antsy about a grade.  Otherwise I do a full rundown before finals time to find out what I have to make to keep or make the best possible grade.

***immediately switches tabs to check grade for one of 2 finals I took today.  With a notoriously slow-grading teacher***

I should know better, lol

I also check mine way, way too often. Even when I know they’re not going to be up, I still impulsively check them. 😛

I am ALWAYS checking my grades. My professors update each assingment online and they even make jokes in class about how many of us check like 3.. 4x a day. I guess they can see it! Especially now, waiting for finals.. I think I check twice as much. Two As so far though! Im so excited, its my first semester back to college after having to take a break and work my butt off for some tuition money!

When I am waiting for my final grades I check e-services about 4 to 5 times a day. When I do not have acceess to a computer that is all I am thinking about. Mine were all posted last night, and I feel like I still have to check it. LOL.

When I’m waiting for final grades to be posted at the end of the semester, I check multiple times a day – it’s a bit crazy. During the semester, I don’t check as often unless it’s right after an exam or assignment that will heavily impact my overall grade.

When I’m waiting for final grades… CONSTANTLY. Otherwise there’s nothign to check, our grade is pretty much based on a 2-3 exams and maybe a paper so I can usually guess… this year I’m on the borderline in several classes so once again, next week and the following I will be a constant checker.
