The answer to the question, which is the title of this paper, suggests itself: yes, we are the keepers of the records. We also are the evaluators of their class participations. To conduct a class consists not only of dissemination of information, but also of provision of feedback on students’ performances. Class participations figure importantly to their performances, and as such almost all syllabi list it as an essential part of requirements. The real question is how are to keep track of their class participation. On the one hand, there has to be an accurate record of students’ class participation for us to be fair in our assessments of their performances. To keep track of an accurate record of students’ class participations (and thus to achieve fair assessment of students’ overall performance for the course), on the other hand, cannot be the only concern an instructor has to contend with during class meetings. Some might even consider it a sacrifice to keep the records on their own of valuable class time and resources. This paper reports our results of implementing the practice of students being the keepers of their own class participation records, utilizing both on-line meetings and face-to-face ones. The practice is meant to achieve the following three things during the class meetings: (1) to keep track of students’ class participation, (2) to keep instructors free from performing a non-essential (non-instructional) tasks, (3) to allow students participation to continue beyond face-to-face class discussions.
