Early Academic Assessment/MidTerm Grading
Early Academic Assessment (EAA) is one of the tools used by Wayne State University to assist our undergraduate students' academic success and therefore to help the university retain its students. Beginning the third week but no later than the end of the seventh week of each fall and winter semester EAA grades must be entered for ALL students enrolled in 3999 level (and lower) courses. This assessment should provide students with feedback regarding their academic performance and can provide a meaningful opportunity for intervention. Students who are performing at a C- or below will receive a notification by e-mail.
EAA grades do not become part of a student's academic record; their purpose is to give students a sense of how they are doing and encourage them to address any academic issues that might be affecting their success. They are also used for advising and counseling.
