Each rubric in the above list is given a letter grade (0-4 scale, where A=4, B=3 and C=2 etc.). We will use a finer scale (e.g., a grade of 2.8, 3.6 or 3.9 etc. on an assignment). Those who exceed 3.66 on the weighted average get a definite A. The instructor reserves the right to use her own discretion to lower this threshold. Those with weighted average >2.5 and < 3.66 get a B and so on. Those with weighted average below 2.5 will be candidates for a C (in all prior offerings no D’s were ever given).
