Grades Again

It's been a while since I posted, and the end of the quarter and the school year is about a week away. So, Bud has really been poking at us to get us to hammer out some details on a good grade in this class.
This is pretty hard to do. After all, people say different things in different ways, and can say a lot in a little, or a little in a lot. Also, some(like me, obviously) may not post too often, unless there is something that they feel is worth being said, or something they feel needs to be shared, or if they need an answer to a question.
So, he's decided to sit down with us individually and discuss with us what a good grading system might be. Shouldn't take too long, there's only six or seven of us.
So far, we've explored blogs and wikis, trying to find their place in the modern classroom. We've been asked to explore the possibilities of both, and how flexible they are(very, by the way).
Do you guys have any ideas?

Grade "A" Blogging

It's time for us to decide what a good grading thingie would be for our class, so says Bud.
I don't have any definite ideas in my head for what constitutes a good grade, but I can think of some general ones- Class Participation and Online Participation.
I don't know what else we could have asked from this class, seing as this wasn't so much a learning thing as much as a research thing.
He'll probably ask us to do something at the end, like a reflection on our experiences during this quarter in the blogsphere, an essay on how blogging can be used in the classroom, and maybe some sort of farewell(temporary or not) to the educational blogsphere. Whether or not the district accepts the blogging proposal as a portfolio system, I won't post to this blog for the summer. After all, I have my personal blog to look after.
Oh whoops, am I journaling?
