GRADING SCALE

(scroll to the bottom of this page to see the grading scale)

Grades are reported to the Registrar's office as letter grades such that a C would transfer to another college as a C, even if that college's letter-grade calculation differed.

Your final course grade will be rounded off to the nearest whole per cent prior to determination of your final letter grade.  For example, 87.30% rounds to 87% and would be a B.  On the other hand, 87.55% rounds to 88% and would be a B+.  This instructor consistently rounds up all final course grades ending with 0.50 or higher.  Thus, a grade of 72.50% is technically required in order to make a final letter grade of C.  A grade of 72.49% is a C- (C minus).

In all cases, class participants receiving first and second class honors (ie. first and second place) in this class automatically receive an A.  Therefore, a minimum of 2 class participants always receive an A in this class, although the number receiving an A is generally higher than this.

You can view all assignment grades by clicking on "Grades."  Within approximately 48 hours after each assignment deadline, you will be able to view a quiz key which will show you which questions were answered incorrectly, only.  You can see this quiz by clicking on past quizzes in the Assignments area.
