Grades for this course

The instructor will be giving you a percentage mark for each assignment/exam. For this course, assignments are seldom all good or all bad, so the strengths of a particular assignment must be balanced against its problems to determine the final grade. Therefore, the grade is a considered judgment of the whole assignment, and a placement within a grade range (listed below), rather than a numerical counting up of categories or correction marks and subtracting the total from 100.
