But kids who have straight A's are generally quite happy to share their grades with their parents... it's the ones who are struggling who sometimes also try to hide the truth about how poorly they are faring.
Yep I've got the online portal user id and password and I periodically get on and check. Trouble is this semester only 2 classes are using the online portal. DD seems to always think she is doing fine. She's an engineering major and most of her classes have curves. I try not to freak out until the curve is taken into consideration at final grade time because it does make a difference.
