Despite the degree of progress reached in regard to different learning theories, as well as students’ approaches to learning, some aspects of students’ attitudes are still unknown. In fact, the total mark is the only indicator of the level of success or failure in the majority of current tertiary institutions. Hence, access to the details of individual student’s marks during the course of a semester, can be useful in providing a guideline for the educator or the student advisor to target particular, at-risk students. Such intermediate summative marks include assignment tasks, laboratory reports and mid-semester exam marks, which although may not follow a constant and similar trend, could assist the educator in recognising the at-risk students. Apart from the information obtained from a current course, some relationships can possibly be found between the current and the previous/prerequisite courses that the students have completed. Since the teacher or the student advisor usually does not have prior awareness of an individual student performance, detailed assessment marks, can likewise assist them in better identifying attitudes and learning styles of at-risk students.
