Is it okay to not get an A in a Masters class? This is a serious question, btw. I've never not gotten an A in any of my teacher credential classes. As an undergrad, I only got 3 Bs - two for French and one for a science class (weather and climate). Is it shameful to get a B in a master's class? I ask because I am currently taking a class from hell and I do not anticipate pulling out an A. I was just warned by my professor that my lack of in-text citations on a paper I submitted (citations were done in the bibliography) could constitute plagiarism so I better never do it again. BTW, I didn't directly quote anything. I just forgot to include the citation of my source to back up my opinion directly in the text. I only did it at the end. So, I only received about half credit for the paper. Anyway, I'm thinking that I'm not getting an A here. Because I want the classes to count towards my salary scale, I have to submit the transcript to my school after the class is completed. Should I be mortified if I don't get an A? I can't not submit the class to my district at all; it's part of the masters program and the degree is what will push me up on the salary scale. How bad will this look if it's not an A on a masters class?
