Course Philosophy


Grading

Grading


Grading issues

Grading Issues

  • Course grades are assigned based on the total number of points accumulated. LETTER GRADES WILL NOT BE ASSIGNED TO PROJECTS OR EXAMS ALONE (see syllabus).

  • Marshall competition is very intense.

  • Not everyone can be “above average.” Some will be below.


More grading issues

More Grading Issues

  • Extra credit cannot be assigned.

  • Grading is based on performance. It is NOT assumed that you start out as “perfect” and have “points taken off” for deficiencies. A perfect score takes a nearly superhuman person!

  • Grading is NOT based on effort put in (or perceived effort put in or effort reported to have been put in).

  • Final grades can generally only be changed to correct mistakes in arithmetic, Scantron misreads, or data entry that have been made. Work quality or cut-offs cannot be re-evaluated under the USC grade change policy.
