Grading Policies

Grading will be based on five assignments and class participation through threaded discussions. The letter grade will be determined by the following grading scale:
A A- B+ B B- C+ C C- D+ D D- F
950-1000 900-949 870-899 840-869 800-839 770-799 740-769 700-739 670-699 640-669 600-639 0-599

Late assignments will be marked one letter grade down for each 3 days they are late. It is expected that all students will conduct themselves in an honest manner and NEVER claim work which is not their own. Violating this policy will result in a substantial grade penalty or a final grade of F.
