Grading Late assignments will be graded down for each week late. Incomplete, or improperly completed, assignments will usually earn a "D" or "F". On occasion, I will require or allow a remake or completion. Your work will also be graded on neatness & attention to specific assignment requirements.

Below are the points you get for each grade

 A+ 100 A 95 A- 90 B+ 89 B 85 B- 80 C+ 79 C 75 C- 70 D+ 69 D 65 D- 60 F+ 59 F 55 F- 50 O 0
 If a student earned every grade between "A" and "C-" on eight grades, the total of 663 divided into 800 would produce an average of 82, or a low "B". To see how perfect this system is, assume a student got five "A's" (95 points each) for a total of 475. Now, divide 475 by the possible total the student would have earned if they got five "A+'s", which is 500. 475 divided by 500 = 0.95, or 95 (A) Also try a theoretical student who got straight A+'s for a total of 500 points on 5 projects; 500 divided into 500 is 1.0, or 100 (A+) Your final homework/classwork average is not the only factor determining your grade: Absences, tardies & leaving early can all effect your final grade. See attendance for more. Incomplete mid-term portfolio presentations (not all work included or all required work presented but no portfolio, or both) or failing to turn in a portfolio on time will effect your review grade. Some extra credit is available.

Below are the grades for the Final

(The final is a combination of grade averages, minus deductions and/or plus extra credit)

A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F 0-59
