Grading Policy

Students are responsible for understanding the course syllabus, assignment descriptions, class discussions and individual conferences, and written comments on graded assignments in order to get a better understanding of the process of interpretation that informs this course.

Below are the criteria for assessment that will be used for this course.

A+: Work of unusual distinction. Rarely awarded.

A: Work that distinguishes itself by the excellence of its grasp of the material and the care and insight of its argument – work that is well executed and free of errors.

B: Work that satisfies the criteria of the assignment and demonstrates command of the material, but does not achieve the level of excellence that characterizes A-quality work.

C: Work that demonstrates a basic grasp of the material and satisfies at least some of the assigned criteria reasonably well.

D: Work that shows a poor grasp of the material and/or is executed with little regard for college standards, but which exhibits some engagement of the material.

F: Work that is weak in every aspect, demonstrating a fundamental misunderstanding of the material and/or disregard for assigned questions.
