Notes on Grading
Grades are not computed mathematically but by letter grades, which may include pluses and minuses.
Percentages listed are only symbolic of approximate relative weight.
Grading attitude: Grades are assigned partly for effort and quantity of a studentís work as evident in submissions but especially for quality of work compared with other studentsí submissions. Standards are set by students as well as by instructor. Each grade must be fair to all students and not just generous to one.
Warning: Positive feedback by instructor or class will be generally honest but should not be taken as a sign of a high grade.
