Grading Criteria

When you make an argument for your grade in the Midterm and Final Reflections, you will use the following grading criteria. You are welcome to use the +/- system if your grade falls somewhere in between these categories.

A
Represents excellent participation in all course activities and excellent quality work produced for the course. Evidence of significant development across the dimensions of learning and course strands. The Learning Record at this level demonstrates activity that goes significantly beyond the required course work.

B
Represents good participation in all course activities and consistently high quality work. Evidence of significant development across the dimensions of learning and course strands.

C
Represents acceptable participation in all course activities and generally good quality work. Evidence of some development across the dimensions of learning and course strands.

D
Represents uneven participation in course activities and inconsistent quality work or some gaps in assigned work completed. Evidence of development across the dimensions of learning and course strands is partial or unclear.

F
Represents minimal participation in course activities, serious gaps in assigned work completed, or very low quality in course work. Little to no evidence of development across the dimensions of learning and course strands.

Late Work
Work deadlines will emerge out of the projects you develop, and it will be important to submit all work to your project collaborators on time. Late work affects the quality and success of your projects and can thus affect your grade.

Attendance
You are expected to attend class regularly, prepared to contribute to the conversations and activities for the day. If you are absent more than three times throughout the semester, you cannot get higher than a B+ for the course. If you are absent more than six times throughout the semester, you cannot pass the course. Tardiness can affect your attendance as well; every three times you are late to class counts as an absence.
