Grade and structure

Grading

10% = participation (in class, office hours, or discussion board)

15% = 10-15 minute presentation in class (outlining the arguments and raising a few questions)

35% = 5-6 page paper

40% = 7-8 page paper

9 of 10 = Participation?

12 of 15 = Presentation?

31 of 35 = Midterm Paper

36? of 40 = Final Paper (assume 90?)

52 - 56 + 36 (40 * .90) = 88 - 92

The University uses a 4 point scale for grades; these “quality” grades are as follows 4.0 = A, 3.7 = A-, 3.3=B+, 3.0 = B, 2.7 = B-, 2.3 = C+, 2.0 = C, 1.7 = C-, 1.3 = D+, 1.0 = D, F = 0. (Note that there is no A+ or D- in the common grade scale.)
