Fixed Grading

The assignments are marked as raw scores according to the percentage weight assigned to each. The marks on course assignments will contribute to the overall letter grade according to the percentage that each assignment is weighted in the course. At the end of the course, all assignment scores are totaled for a term summary mark in the course based on the grading scale below. The FINAL COURSE GRADE is based on the cumulative total of individual student’s weighted assignment marks.
