I give three mid-term exams. After the first mid-term, I require that any student who received a D or F must meet with me. I explain that the purpose of the meeting is to discuss how the student is preparing for the exam. During the meeting with the student, we identify where the student had issues with the matterial and how he or she can be better prepared for the next mid-term. This summer I read Teach Students How to Learn by Saundra Yancy McGuire. After the first mid-term, I shared some of Dr. McGuire's material with the whole class.
