Grading

Grading Criteria:
Assignments are graded holistically based on the following qualitative rubric:

“A” level work consists of cogent, well-articulated, and well-developed written and oral presentation, demonstrating insight, originality, and complexity in both form (e.g., language, expression, organization) and substance (e.g., logical argumentation, factual accuracy, and appropriate examples); critical thinking skills are amply demonstrated; tasks are completed on time and according to the guidelines, often going “above and beyond”. “A” level work is considered excellent.

“B” level work may be thoughtful and developed, but may not be original, particularly insightful, or precise. While ideas might be clear, focused, and organized, they are less likely to be comprehensive or dialectical. Critical thinking skills are satisfactory; “B” level work is considered good.

“C” level work is reasonably competent, yet may be unclear, inconsistent, and minimally inadequate in form and/or content. Critical thinking skills are minimal; “C” level work is considered acceptable and mediocre.

“D” level work is not competent, appropriate, relevant, complete, and/or adequate in form and/or content, often lacking familiarity with course readings, lectures, or basic concepts. Critical thinking skills are largely absent. “D” level work is barely passing.

“F” level work is generally not enough work, often missing assignments or substantial parts thereof, doing work below the stated minimum requirements, not demonstrating any critical thinking skills, not being familiar with course lectures, readings, or basic concepts, academically dishonest, or is otherwise unacceptable for credit. “F” level work is failing.

As per privacy regulations, I will not share any grades via email.
