Grading

Grading is on an absolute scale. You will be compared against the following performance standard, and not to other students.

A:
88% and up (A- 88-90%)
B:
78% to 88% (B+ 85-88%, B- 78-80%)
C:
67% to 78% (C+ 75-78%, C- 67-70%)
D:
55% to 67% (D+ 64-67%, D- 55-58%)

We reserve the right to adjust these numbers downward (in the students' favor) but guaranteed that they will not be raised.
