The following is my general grading procedure in all my courses.
I teach a lecture-style course where students are expected to take notes and complete daily assignments. I will provide several examples for the students to follow and if time allows, guided practice during class. The students are expected to complete every assignment, read their text, and review their work on a daily basis. The students should be prepared for quizzes and projects given at the teacher’s discretion. No late assignments will receive credit. Assignments will be graded based on completion most of the time. Every problem must be attempted in order to receive full credit. Assignments will be graded on a random basis.
Homework assignments are typically 5 to 10 points. Quizzes are typically 30 to 50 points. Tests are typically 80 to 100 points.
Course grades are figured on total points earned divided by total points possible with: 90% = A 80% = B 70% = C 60% = D
