									Grading Criteria
The Plan
             Borderline Students


Year-End Bonus

-- there are 1-to-3 year-end course percentage points
available at the end of the year
-- if you get 3, it would make an 87% an A.
-- I use this for people who end up on the border
(there is no rounding of grades)
              Borderline Students


 items
-- bonus is awarded for:
(a) Quality Point Score one letter higher than your course
    avg
(b) exam grades one letter higher than your course
    average
(c) reading questions one letter higher than your course
    average    most important
(d) attendance one letter higher than your course avg
                   Merit Adjustment


notes/attendance can only help
-- Notes/Attendance (as a composite) can only ever help your
grade, not hurt it
-- If you have a grade of B in the course but notes/attendance
brings it down to a C, grades will be calculated without regard
to notes/attendance. (You get the B).

                Final Course Grades


 No Favors

-- Grades are only an indication of how often you scored
in the game
-- No favors are given

                     Final Course Grades


 No Rounding

-- If you end up with a 59.99%, the grade is F
           (89.99% is B)
           [note: see policy for borderline students]

Flunking

-- I will flunk you if you don’t earn above a 59.99%
(some professors “spare” people for reasons of grace and
“life excuses.” I do not do this. Poor marks are given
where earned)
