Fall 2017 FOR 345/545
How do I assess thee?
Let me count the ways...
I grade from the very depth and heart of my spreadsheet (as follows, with apologies to Shakespeare):

FOR 345

Lab 35%
Final Exam 25%
Three One-Hour Exams - 40%

FOR 545

Final Project or Paper: 15%, B or better required for graduate credit
Lab 30%
Final Exam 20%
Three Hour Exams - 35%
This is the entire source of points for the semester. There is no mechanism to earn 'extra credit' and there is no curve. Scoring 95% earns a solid 'A'. Eighty-five percent will earn a solid 'B' and a solid C is acquired with 75%. If you find yourself below expectations, the time to make adjustments is IMMEDIATELY after the first exam. If you score below 70 on exam 1 (the easiest of the semester) you should be concerned.
