Grading Procedures
In this class, grades are determined by dividing total points earned over total points possible.

For example, an assignment may be worth 50 points, but a student may earn 40 points. While the percentage for this one assignment results in an 80%, the influence of the points earn varies in proportion to the value of the assignment. That is, 0 points earned out of 20 points possible for a homework grade may equal 0%, but it will not influence the overall grade in the same way that 0 points earned out of 50 points possible would. However, a collection of 0s earned will certainly result in a much lower grade than preferred for any student.
