GRADING SCALE

 1. The student who achieves the highest number of points on each method of evaluation sets the curve (starts the "A's") for that particular task. The highest number of points achieved equals 100% and the grades are then calculated as follows:

90-100% = A; 80-89%=B; 70-79% = C; 60-69% = D

2. This grading system will also be used to determine final grades which are based upon the highest number of points acquired for the entire semester.
