I'm deeply troubled by the view of class statistics available to students. Recently students told me what they see with this feature and how it almost invariably sinks their morale. That they can see where they are in relation to other members of the class might be okay (maybe) in a large class, but in small classes the student who gets the 64 when everyone else gets 85 and above is just demoralized by this information. And the statement , "That's you!" for the outlying student (bad or good) is equally demotivating and demoralizing to students. I spend so much time trying to deprogram them from thinking their grades are a statement about their worth as human beings, that it is disheartening to discover that LS is giving the opposite message. Even if a student got a 64 when everyone else got an 85, that isn't them, that is merely a grade they got.
Now that I know this is what students see I've opted out of "view statistics", but I'm philosophically opposed to it being available at all as I think it encourages unhealthy attitudes about grades, competition, and fellow students. I would ask you to discontinue the feature (at least in student view). Barring that, I'd ask you to remove the language that reinforces their grades = them.
