What I mean is that do administrators tend to look for a certain range of F's or D's? They can't come out and say they are looking for a certain pass rate, but there has got to be a certain percentage that makes them go hmm right? It's the end of the 1st semester of my 1st year of teaching. Out of 118 total students, I have 7 F's (6%) and 26 D's (22%). I try my best to warn my students and help them along the way, but man some of them simply don't give a ****. Some of my students ended the last 3-4 weeks of the semester turning in squat. They basically went from a passing to failing. It's like "Dude, so you want to squander the last 3 weeks and have to repeat an entire 20 weeks over again next year?" So frustrating!
