**Grading System:**

** **All graded assignments are given a point value. The points are accumulated over a six week
grading period and then a percent grade is achieved based upon your total
versus the total possible points.

Example:

Your total = 350 pts.

Total poss. = 425 pts.

Percent = 82.3%

Letter grade = use scale below

100 94.5% = A

94.4 89.5% = A-

89.4 87.5% = B+

87.4 82.5% = B

82.4 79.5% = B-

79.4 77.5% = C+

77.4 72.5% = C

72.4 69.5% = C-

69.4 67.5% = D+

67.4 62.5% = D

62.4 59.5% = D-

59.4 and below = F

The semester grade is an
average of the three six week grading periods and a comprehensive final
exam. Each of the three six weeks is
worth 30% and the final is 10% of the semester grade.
