Grades

Your final course grade is based on the accumulated points built out of the weekly assigned tasks. Here is the point breakdown for these tasks:

Task
Points
Composition #1 100   (10%)
Composition #2 150   (15%)
Composition #3 150   (15%)
Composition #4 200   (20%)
Journal Entries (ten) 200   (20%)
Communication Activities (Ten) 200   (20%)
Total 1000 (100%)
Extra Credit Opportunities (variable) +?

 

The grading is based on a classic curve -

90% + = A
80%-89% = B
70%-79% = C
60%-69% = D
59%- = F

Plus and minus grades (there is no "A+" or "F-") are used to reflect overall improvement, especially from the Composition #1 to the Composition #4 rewrite.

All students have the right to an explanation as to how their grades are determined and to a
re-evaluation of any graded task. If you do have questions about your grades, contact me and we will arrange a conference to review your performance. It is crucial to this class that you always feel confident that you are being evaluated fairly and in virtue of your best effort.
