|Fall 2021 FOR 345/545 -The dawn of a new day|
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 345Lab 35%
Three One-hour Exams - 45% (@15% each)
Final Cumulative Two-hour Exam 20%
FOR 545Final Project or Paper: 10%, B or better required for graduate credit
Final Exam 20%
Three One-hour Hour Exams - 35% (@11.67% each)
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.
